Two things stood out: this fair statement of education's role in a student's media mix: "It's holding 90 percent music and 10 percent course content, no question, but I'm so grateful for that 10 percent." And this non-regulation use of iPods: "Students can also communicate with one another through "podcasting," the newest type of blogging in the form of audio files."
