This case study examines the use of simple audio podcasts in a fully online distance education class, as part of the DUCKLING research project conducted by the Beyond Distance Research Alliance at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom. It discusses the benefits of using podcasts as part of an integrated online learning strategy in a distance learning context, and gives an overview of how podcasts were used to introduce concepts, provide support for assignments, and to give students direct feedback on their work.

I use these videos in the e-learning module of the University of Bristol's Teaching and Learning in Higher Education programme. Part of the module allows academics to explore areas of e-learning that interest them, and this excellent selection of video case studies offers a range of examples of practice. Staff can explore individual cases which they are encouraged to analyse in terms of why technology is being used, what are the benefits and potential issues. This reflection is then used to help inform their own planning of a technology-enhanced learning activity.
