Abstract

Podcasting is a new trend in self-expression using internet-based mass media. The word 'Podcasting' was coined combining the words, iPod and broadcasting. Now individuals can deliver his/her audio and video feeds to unidentified large audiences. Mass communication is changing its form. Taking this drastic change into account, this paper consists of two parts, aiming to introduce 1) the current situation of internet-based mass media use by Japanese university students, especially in relation to Podcasting, and 2) a case study involving a workshop on Podcasting in a classroom setting, and the students' reactions. To protect their privacy, the students did not do real Podcasting; instead the workshop consisted of theory and practice. The students, however, learned greatly about Podcasting. Their opinions about how they perceive Podcasting after the workshop and their ideas about how they would like to use it are reported.
