1. Available 24/7 – The fundamental benefit of podcasting in education is the portability and convenience of listening to learning resources anytime, anywhere, without the need for extensive technical knowledge. Podcasts can be downloaded on all types of mobile devices such as B. MP3 players, mobile phones, PDAs and mobile computers. Learning materials downloaded to mobile devices can be listened to by learners at their own time and place.
2. Student Review – A podcast of a lecture that can be downloaded by students can become an invaluable study aid for the student. The podcast is available to the student for reference at any point. A student who initially had difficulty understanding and may not have fully understood a topic in class can now learn the material at their own pace.
3. Missed Classes – There are certainly many e-learning situations that would benefit from using this type of tool. For example, a sick student can download a podcast of the lectures they missed at school, or if a teacher or professor is unable to attend their class for some reason, they could make a podcast of their lecture available on a website where students can easily download it. This method could easily be implemented to ensure that no student misses class or lecture. It is a solution that could be feasible from elementary school level to university level.
4. Appeal to Audiovisual Learners – Perhaps one of the most important educational features that podcasting offers is learning through listening. For many people, listening may be more attractive and less tiring than reading. Listening can motivate and encourage students who dislike reading. Podcasting is also particularly useful when a visual impairment makes traditional learning methods difficult.
