Podcasts are available free to all (faculty, students, and the broader Net community). If you listen, please let me know!
If feedback remains positive, I'll be sure to podcast more courses.
Also note there is more free course content available at
gallaugher.com, including chapters, syllabi, and the Week in Geek.
Q: How has podcasting impacted student attendance?
A: I've noticed no difference. We've had a nearly full classes for each lecture, but my students have been warned that classroom attendance is a minimum expectation and grades will drop significantly if they do not attend lectures.
Thanks for your interest!
