The PALgroups Podcast is a new resource available for the education community. Using a new instructional technology, audio episodes are provided through this blog page as well as available for free subscription through Apple's iTunes.
Two ways to listen to the episodes which last about 5 to 10 minutes.
#1. Click on the web link within the blog posting that describes the podcast episode. This will download the audio file to your computer. Whatever serves as the default media player on your computer (example: iTunes, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, QuickTIme Player) will automatically open up the file and begin to play it. If iTunes opens up the file, it will be saved to your music library on the computer that iTunes manages for you.
#2. Subscribe to the podcast series through iTunes. Assuming that you have the free iTunes software installed on your computer, open up iTunes and select the Apple Store from the main web links. In the upper right hand corner in the search window type "Arendale". Up will pop several podcasts that I produce. Select "Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Groups" and click "subscribe". It will ask you confirm again by requiring you to click "subscribe" again. The episodes will automatically download to a folder within the podcast section of your library. If some of this is difficult, ask any student. They can guide you (it is what I did to get started).
