Podcasts are increasingly being used to support learning and teaching in Higher Education Institutions, both within the curriculum and as outward facing information and marketing tools. Podcasts are currently available in different formats including, pure audio, enhanced audio and video podcasts. In this paper we describe and evaluate a project that investigates students’ use of different podcast formats on a range of platforms. We relate this to a spectrum of mobility with respect to the types of hardware platform and the corresponding suitability of the podcast format.
