The author states that it is "an unprecedented move" as Stanford moves with Apple to podcast "a wide range of lectures, speeches, debates and other university content through iTunes." I am at a bit of a loss to figure out what's unprecedented. Podscasting lectures? No, I've been doing that for two years, and I am by no means alone. Allowing free public access to university course content? No, MIT has that pretty much sewn up with OpenCourseWare. Maybe it's just "unprecedented" for Stanford. Or maybe we're seeing celebrity tabloid journalism as it plays out in the field of instructional technology. More here, from Gizmodo (tabloid journalism for gadgets).
