There are several ways to use audio content in teaching and learning. Podcast / audio files enable students to listen to lecture content anywhere and anytime they wish. Podcasts can be offered as a substitute for or in combination with written material. Feedback can be given as recorded instead of a written feedback.
Podcasts can be recorded with programs such as Audacity. Once the recording is ready, the audio file is uploaded to an institutional service or service such as Google Cloud or Soundcloud.
Creating informative podcasts for civic partners or for general knowledge sharing can also be given as an assignment for learners.
