Instructional Technologies in Education
Video and Audio
What are they?
Video and/or audio materials can be made available through an online sharing service where viewers can post feedback. These files can be "podcasts" which involves making the audio and video files available for download on a routine basis via subscription (RSS). Usage statistics also enhance the usefulness of the service.
