U of M Experts Producing Podcast Content

I’m a big fan of listening to lectures, keynote addresses, documentaries, etc. on my MP3 player. So, when it was brought to my attention that our own University of Minnesota is producing some excellent content of its own, I was pretty happy. Bankruptcy reform, food self-sufficiency, and stem cell cancer research are among the topics covered recently in the series. Check it out. And, if you’re new to podcasting, check out the Wikipedia “podcasting” overview.

    Yeah. I know secondhand (a medical student in the house) that the U does some pretty cool stuff online. Most of the lectures during her first couple of years of classwork were made available in streaming video almost immediately after they were over. They were usually just a static cam shot of the overhead or powerpoint screen along with audio of the lecturer. But these videos along with printouts of powerpoint slides or lecture outlines proved to be invaluable review and note taking tools. Really cool. How the hell did we ever learn anything before the Internet? :)

    Ooh. Ooh! Thanks for that tip. Podcasts are my new favorite thing to listen to in the car (when there’s nothing good on NPR) or while I’m running (since I don’t like to run to music).
