  1. As someone new to teaching online, this subject is one of considerable interest to me. I checked the SMOW offering out and tried downloading one of the videopodcasts. There are 57 individual videos, most of which are just a few minutes long. The titles are specific enough so that the reader can determine whether or not a particular video is worth downloading. This is a tool I’m going to explore further.
