The Duke Digital Initiative

Podcast Academy just posted an episode featuring Zachary Pogue from Duke University on their podcasting and digital teaching initiatives. Known as the Duke Digital Initiative or DDI, this is a hybrid digital teaching model. For all the educators out there, check out the DDI.

In answer to the concern of workload issues, Duke makes use of an automated system developed by the University of Western Australia known as Lectopia and also known as the iLecture system.

In this audio podcat, Zachary Pogue talks about the technology but also speaks to the drivers of digital technology in teaching and learning particularly in how students can benefit from this. It’s a great overview from a teacher who has been there and has achieved success in this new area of teaching technology.
