Abstract

Despite the huge popularity of podcasting and vodcasting as entertainment they have yet to be well studied as educational tools. In this study we developed vodcasts to present all content in a fully online Biochemistry course. The vodcast lectures were made available to students via an RSS feed within iTunesU. Despite the portability enabled by vodcasting only 20% of students multitasked while viewing the podcasts, although 100% of respondents liked the flexibility of vodcast lectures. Respondents also felt they learned as effectively or more effectively than they would have in an on-campus course. Respondents indicated that vodcast lectures were used as a primary source for content and not the required textbook and their preferred method of presentation were screencasts.
