On Friday, September 16, Dr. Richardson Dilworth, assistant professor of history and politics in the College of Arts and Sciences, will present a lecture via podcasting about the founding of the Constitution and the local charter.

Tech Talk

I did a radio interview a few weeks ago on Tech Talk with Craig Peterson. The topic was Back to School Technology. The entire program is available here but for this podcast I cut out my portion of about 15 minutes.

I mainly talked about the implementation of podcasting and screencasting in the Drexel College of Arts and Sciences and a bit about the School of Education ipod initiative this fall.

RNAi talk

Aleister Saunders from our Drexel Bioscience department gave a talk about the RNAi Resource Center:

Drexel University RNA interference Resource Center – Introductory Seminar

A series of seminars introducing the biology and technology of RNA interference where held at the University City, Center City, Queen Lane, and Doylestown campuses of Drexel University. The screencast link allows viewers to hear and see the seminar as it occurred on Aug. 31, 2005. The podcast is only the audio portion of the seminar.

RSS club meeting 12

We had a lively group at yesterday's RSS club meeting. Dan Karleen from Thomson Peterson joined our Drexel group from English (Scott Warnock), Math (Hugo Woerdman), Chemistry (Kevin Owens) and Ken Hartman (Drexel.com).

There was only one item from my Drexel CoAS E-Learning blog to discuss: podcasting in education for the fall. A few universities (Berkeley, Purdue, Bryn Mawr, Drexel) have feeds set up to distribute audio from entire lectures. We discussed various issues relating to this like screencasting, webcasting, student attendance, open courseware and likely outcomes of all these initiatives.

Having someone of Dan's caliber join us in person so soon after crossing paths a week ago in the blogosphere is a testament to the speed of action in an RSS world. Dan will be coming back as our first speaker this fall in our Drexel CoAS E-Learning Lecture series to talk about marketing with blogs. I'll post more information in the main blog shortly.
