Podcasts have been an additional channel for keeping ourselves updated about new educational paradigms, technology in education, and acquiring new knowledge about subjects we are interested in.
The significance of this model is that depending on our declared areas of interest or channels we subscribe to, the content stream (usually small multimedia Learning nuggets) gets pushed to our device and available for viewing at our own free time.
For working professionals, who would normally have busy schedule and travel (prior to the nCOVID pandemic) it was very useful as the next set of content objects would queue up for you to review it. They are usually small nuggets and would not take more than 10-15 minutes utmost for viewing it. Truly anytime anywhere learning and instead of having to search for content of your interest these streams recognize your interest areas and recommend appropriate content for you.
Push technology combined with micro learning and a smart recommendation engine, deliver a compelling proposition on how you can keep yourselves updated at all times. Particularly on mobile devices.
