Abstract: This paper presents preliminary results of a trial of podcasting in six law units involving1244 students during semester 1, 2006. The data revealed a rapid uptake and acceptance ofpodcasting with few difficulties. The vast majority of students perceived podcasting ashaving excellent value, particularly lectures and to a lesser extent, tutorials. Podcastingaltered study habits, with students spending more time reading primary materials, and aminority of students spending time transcribing podcasts. Podcasts did not reduceparticipation on WebCT discussion forums. Podcasts were expected by students to bedelivered within three days, with students prepared to accept lengthier downloads forimproved quality. The paper discusses the main advantages and disadvantages ofpodcasting as revealed by student users. There is no doubt that audio podcasting has nowbecome an essential requirement for teaching tertiary students within the law units. Thechallenge will be for UNE to create workflows to meet the expectations of students as toquality and service delivery.
