Podcasting has come to RIT. For spring quarter, Professor Steve LaLonde is offering applied multivariate statistics as the first class offered through podcasting at RIT.

Podcasting – posting an audio or video recording online that can be heard or viewed through a computer or downloaded to a mobile device like an iPod – is yet another interactive technology catching on as a teaching tool. LaLonde, an assistant professor in the Center for Quality and Applied Statistics, has previously taught his distance-learning course by using DVDs. The DVDs will continue but students will also be able to Web stream video on their computers or download lectures to an iPod.

“Podcasting will make the class mobile,” says LaLonde. “Students can make productive use of time while traveling.”
