Podcasts and videocasts (recordings of lectures with audio and video content) are valuable teaching resources which provide a flexible and engaging learning environment and help to accommodate a wider variety of learning styles. Getting students to generate videocasts of their work can give teachers a valuable insight into how students approach problems and the depth and breadth of their knowledge in the relevant subject area. A database of student videocasts can encourage a community approach in learning, where students can learn from the knowledge, tips, dead ends, tricks and approaches of their peers. Practical issues associated with the use of online teaching material and assessment methods are included. Key issues to consider include the carrying-over of course content and logistical issues such as file sizes, recording times and techniques of recording.
