Faculty Development Program Archives Podcast Now Available in iTunes

NIU Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center has been offering online faculty development programs now for nearly a year.  Not only can faculty/staff or TAs from any institution participate in these free online workshops, but archives are made available for on-demand viewing online.

With the recent upgrade of the Wimba Classroom collaboration tool that powers these online workshops, archives are now also available in podcast form and available for download from iTunes for viewing offline on a computer or a mobile media player, such as an iPod Touch or iPhone.

Now, in addition to faculty/staff and TAs being able to view any of our recorded online programs online at http://www.niu.edu/facdev/programs/archives.shtml program archives are available in iTunes by subscribing to the podcast at  http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=326308196

Soon, anyone searching “NIU Faculty Development” in iTunes on either their computer or iPod/iPhone will be able to subscribe and download any of our archived online programs.

If you are an iTunes user, feel free to subscribe to the podcast at http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=326308196 and try viewing one of the archived sessions.  The quality of application sharing in particular is stunning, even on a portable device.  Leave us a comment here or in iTunes with your thoughts on this new archive format.

We will continue to add future online program archives to this podcast as another effort at providing support, resources, and information available in the most accessible format possible.
