Abstract

This paper present from the outset the result of a survey at Aarhus University, Denmark on student’s usage, wishes, and demands for podcasting. In the light of this survey, the paper discusses the basic understandings and concepts of podcasts together with latest research findings of its use and effect in teaching and learning. The paper emphasizes that there is a mismatch between what students want and what they actually need when it comes to podcasting, and that the demands of the students seem based on entertainment usage. The paper concludes that pod-casting holds great potentials with regards to learning, but that podcasts must be short, engaging, and integrated in other learning objectives and methods. Finally, the paper put forth some simple recommendations and possible solutions to the use of podcasting in higher education.
