Students at the DePaul University's College of Commerce are doing their daily work through podcasts and vodcast (podcast with video). Students often have no Internet access when they travel, so they use podcast service, which is downloadable on their telephone, iPod or a computer.
The University is producing podcasts and vodcasts for students to watch before signing up for classes to learn about professors and coursework. Kelly Richmond Pope, assistant professor in the college's School of Accountancy and Management Information Systems is using podcasting to communicate with her students in Taiwan. While at some colleges and universities, students produce their own podcasts as part of their assignments. Students at Duke University in Durham, have been assigned to demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language via a podcast and create short movies showing scenes they imagine from a Jane Austen novel.
