After reading the article I have to say two things. One i learned a bit more on what is a podcast and that it has been around for some years now. The other was that podcast could make life easier for the now college student. College students now in day are so into the new technology that if they were to have a lecture on their phones via podcast it would make their lives easier. For example if they student had to work or had no one to take care of the baby for the day or night while they attended class. The professor could podcast the lecture and the assignments for that day. That would make it easier for that student to maintain a good grade in the course. Of course there would have to be very strict rules on how many times a student may miss class and use the podcast option. I still agree that the student need to attend class because that is how we learn, not over a phone. But the idea of having a lecture on a phone is very interesting.
