Thinking of Podcasting a Course? Find Out What Law Students Think

John Mayer of CALI has posted the end-of-semester survey results for the Legal Education Podcasting Project. The survey is on the perceptions of law students enrolled in courses in which the professor also podcast the lectures.

The results are quite interesting. Here are some of the findings:

  • 38.4% of students listened to most or all of the podcasts
  • The majority of students listened to the podcasts on their PCs or laptops - not on an iPod
  • The students were asked if they skipped any classes because they knew the podcast was available. Over 80% said no. Oddly, some students reported attending the podcasted classes more than other classes.
  • 73.8% rated the podcasts at excellent or above average value.
