E-Learning Podcasts for a Learning Management System
San Jose, CA - Coggno.com, an e-learning solutions company and learning management system, provides users with course creation tools fully integrated with Apple software. Coggno’s course creation toolset, complete with the Apple Podcast Producer, allows courseware developers to record, upload, and convert learning content into a podcast for convenient and broad distribution.
Studies show that listeners respond with the most interest to audio information that varies in texture and tone. A podcast is an effective medium for doing so, since it allows content creators to intersperse music, pieces of interviews, sound bites, etc. which lend the material texture and continuity. When no music or other sounds are incorporated, content creators can create intrigue by speaking in a conversational tone. In podcast dialogue, the speaker should sound like he or she is speaking directly to the listener.
As more schools and organizations adopt Web 2.0 and other e-learning tools such as LMSs for in-house training and educational purposes, the traditional method of instruction is changing dramatically. The creation and maintanance of learning content is a task no longer designated only to educators and trainers. With the increasing popularity of interactive educational methods, often prompted by e-learning tools like discussion boards and LMS features, students themselves are able to create, distribute, contest, and compare knowledge.
Coggno’s Apple Podcast Producer is an effective tool for helping LMS students to learn, interpret, and analyze instructional material. Studies show that when students are able to take information and use it to create something, their understanding of the topic is much more profound than if they were to simply absorb the material.
With Coggno’s simple-to-use Apple Podcast Producer, podcasts are easy to create, produce, and share. And of course, since podcasts are simply mp3 files, students don’t need an iPod to listen to them. Podcasts are tiny files, convenient and portable for all kinds of learners and appealing to many learning styles.
Podcasts can be used in an educational context in a variety of ways. They can supplement and reinforce course learning content, renew activities or topics, or serve as announcements, updates, or reminders for all students. Educators and trainers also find that podcasts are great tools for distributing lectures and discussions, as well as informing students what to expect in the next activity or lesson.
The Apple Podcast Producer included in Coggno’s learning management system is a user-friendly and automatic audio editing program with excellent accessibility not only for educators, but for e-learning students as well.
