Podcasting is a growing trend in higher education, and this chapter reviews the most common applications for podcasting in higher education and the current literature on its impact on student learning. Although many educators question whether podcasting creates an effective active learning environment, institutional research data from Georgia College & State University indicate that podcasting may have a positive impact grade on distributions and retention, but not on student opinion surveys rating teacher performance. While surveys indicate that students want podcasts of course materials, research suggests that they make limited use of them. Data indicate that student-produced podcasts may be the most efficacious academic model for podcasting, but much work remains to be done to assess the educational impact of podcasting.
