Using the iPod for classwork

The iPod is known around the world as a platform for music and general entertainment. However, it has now become one of the best educational tools available. Carleton university is is making available a series of lectures in chemistry as a podcast that can be downloaded from iTunes.

While it is probably not the first time a podcast is used to record a lecture, it seems to be the first time a university officially provides the full content of a course is iTunes. And, what is best, it can be downloaded free.

Maybe the example of Carleton University will be followed by many other educational institutions, to make education more accessible to everybody (with an iPod, or course...).
