As the story explains, "A lecturer at a West Yorkshire university has abolished traditional lectures in favour of podcasts." The professor argues that "the move would better suit the needs of distance learners, part-time students and those balancing studies with family and work." and that "Some lecture classes have 250 students, so I question the effectiveness of a didactic lecture for an hour." Typically a porfessor would offer a podcast in addition to a lecture, but we have to ask, if we could offer only one of a traditional lecture or a podcast, which makes more sense? Via Mark Oehlert.
