I'm here with Ken talking about Podcasting out audio recordings of his lectures, to compliment presentations that are available for download. Here's some audio I recorded, talking to Ken about Podcasting, and demonstrating the podcasting process.

I encouraged Ken to attend the finding and reusing digital resources workshop. I explained that at the moment our organisation doesn't have a policy that addresses Creative Commons or Open Courseware opportunities. We discussed the difference between the Intellectual Property of the Lecturer, and the Copyrights of the Organisation...
