I recently made a podcast for students on E304 "Exploring English Grammar" (it can be found at http://patrickandrewsuk.podomatic.com/entry/2016-04-05T08_49_43-07_00 but is probably only of interest to my own students).
I have been surprised and pleased by how positive the feedback has been. Amongst the reasons for liking it have been:
- it is concise
- it is suitable for listening to on the move
- it enables students who could not make tutorials to have access to some of the issues that were covered
I think it is quite low fi but relatively easy to produce and is another way of communicating with students - it seemed to prompt several emails and interaction with students that might not have occured otherwise.
