What type of podcasts work best for learning?
Leading up to the re-launch of the ElearningWorld podcast we were reflecting on the types of podcasts, and the ways people use them.
Personally I listen to podcasts for 3 main reasons:
- News – e.g. BBC (being from the UK originally it keeps me connected to what’s happening there)
- Entertainment – I enjoy political satire such as The Bugle, and The News Quiz
- Technology – I often pick up new information from Mac Geek Gab, and MacWorld
- General – my favourites being the Skeptics Guide to the Universe, and Stuff you should know
I guess our own ElearningWorld podcast tries to borrow some of the best ideas and approaches of the above to guide our own production.
Are there any podcasts you really love?
Is there anything we can learn from those to improve our own?
