MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the factors affecting the implementation of podcasting within a post secondary educational institution. The institution in the present investigation is a member of iTunes University and has provided faculty with the option of creating an educational media cast of content for delivery of course materials. Despite the services and support available, the inception of this technology has not been ubiquitous throughout various schools within this institution. A mixed methods approach was used to identify factors that faculty members used when making decisions to implement educational media casting. It was believed that one significant factor would be an individuals’ comfort level with technology. This was measured in an online survey. The results obtained suggest that time is the most critical factor that will affect decisions on implementation of this technology.
