Some recent articles have suggested that podcasting may not be an appropriate tool in higher education. However, in reviewing the content, one will find the focus has been on the “broadcasting of lectures” for students. At Georgia College & State University where the first iPod initiative in higher education was started in 2002, there was a challenge in demonstrating the iPod was more than a little boombox. Today, those in higher education must move beyond the lecture to an environment of student engagement.


In Part 2 of the series, participants will hear ways that podcasting can be used to enhance the educational experience beyond the classroom and lecture.


Participants will be able to:
  • Describe materials used to enhance the learning experience
  • Describe activities that engage the student in knowledge production
  • Develop ideas for campus implementation

Who should attend?

  • All higher education academic and student support faculty & staff

Who is the speaker? 

  • Jim Wolfgang, Director of the Digital Innovation Group @ Georgia College (Host)


Jim Wolfgang has retired as the Chief Information Officer at Georgia College & State University, Georgia's Designated Public Liberal Arts University. He is now the Director of the Digital Innovation Group @ Georgia College.


More than 37 years of "experience" in higher education have included roles as faculty, chair, Assistant Dean of the School of Education and Associate Vice President for Distance Education. An active member of the University System of Georgia, Jim has been involved in numerous Information Technology and Instructional Technology initiatives and committees. Through his association with corporate partners, GCSU and the University System of Georgia have been involved in establishing many new ways of using technology to “Improve the Quality of Life.”


In addition to the iPod initiative, one of GCSU's most successful projects was delivering a full MPA graduate degree via 2 way interactive videoconferencing to the men and women of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier anywhere in the world during the Gulf War.


Jim completed his Ed.D. in Health Education at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
