New iPods

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

Apple just launched new iPods.

The new nano has a screen with a 320×240 pixel resolution, with a price slightly lower than the previous nanos and with more memory. This is very important for mobile learning since the new low-end iPods has a resolution which makes enhanced podcasts created from lecture powerpoints readable.

However, the technically more interesting new iPod is the iPod Touch, basically an iPhone without a phone. The user interface and the screen (480x320px) are similar to iPhones, the ipod has wifi and it also has a Safari web browser. Given the high resolution of the screen and the relatively low price, podcast for education are probably very appealing on this iPod.

Now, let’s just hope that the stupid limitation of not allowing rectangular enhanced podcasts is now removed, and  we have an excellent learning tool!

Podcast about podcasts in education

Monday, May 28th, 2007

A presentation by me about using podcasts in education (in Swedish). The enhanced podcast file (m4a) can be viewed using QuickTime or iTunes, the 3gp file is suitable for mobile phones (tested on a SonyEricsson P990i), and the pdf file is… well a pdf file.
