Abstract

Educational podcasting takes many forms, from lecture recordings to student-produced discussions of study topics. This paper describes a pilot project that aims to consider the significance that adopting a particular presentational 'voice' may have on how understanding of that content is shaped. It is based on Gardner Campbell's (2005) notion of the 'explaining voice' of radio as a model for effective educational podcasting, drawing on the nuances of broadcasting style to enhance understanding of the content. The project draws on the production resources and training opportunities available due to the presence of an on-campus community radio station. The paper then outlines preliminary research into the potential benefits of developing a radio-like stylistic approach to podcasting in a university setting.
