Podcasting for pennies a day

November 19, 2007

With a “rock-bottom” budget, an online program director at an inner-city Los Angeles college has successfully provided podcasts of classroom lectures to students, as part of a pilot program started in 2006.  Using free cast-off computers from a local county courthouse and help from an open source software startup, the podcasts are available to the many LATTC students who had traditionally used personal tape recorders to help overcome their poor language skills.
