Podcasts are a great way for students to learn things that interest them. They are able to download podcast to any device they want and listen and learn. Teachers can also use podcast for homework or in the classroom to teach something. They give or play the podcast for the students to listen to and then have an activity or assignment to complete once the podcast is over. One of my professors did podcasts and we would listen to them for homework and then the class following it would be reviewing what we learned, going over our questions and going into more detail about the topic as well as completing a little assignment on it.
