This article, by
Edward Berger, Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering University of Virginia, appears in Volume 4, Issue 1, October/November 2007 edition of Innovate. Check the article out below.


Edward Berger illustrates how podcasting technology allowed him to provide focused models of complex calculations in a college engineering course, thereby allowing his students a valuable resource for their continued study outside the classroom.

Podcasting in Engineering Education:
A Preliminary Study of Content, Student Attitudes, and Impact
By Edward Berger

Synopsis
Edward Berger describes a pilot project implemented in an undergraduate engineering mechanics course, entitled Strength of Materials to investigate whether and how students would perceive a benefit from podcasting as a pedagogical tool. Three types of podcasting content were produced: (a) video problem solutions, (b) roundtable discussions, and (c) exam reviews
