      Still basking in the glow of welcoming messages to IATEFL,
      in lieu of a self-introduction and perhaps to nominate a discussion topic;
      first, three chapters in recent books:

      "Podcasting to amplify the College EFL Curriculum"
      JALT 2006, Kitakyushu, Japan, November 2-5, 2006:

      Some might ask, what is podcasting? The jargon takes some
      getting used to, but in a manuscript just completed,
      "Window into the Classroom: Podcasting an
      English for Professional Purposes Course",
      Rogers (2005) defines a podcast as
      "content such as a radio show that is recorded in the ubiquitous
      MP3 format and broadcast (or more accurately, published) on a web site
      for download by anyone who cares to listen to it on a mobile device or
      a computer. Through the use of RSS (Really Simple Syndication),
      information about the web site and the podcasts (or other content)
      that is available on the web site is provided in a lightweight XML
      format. The RSS files, or 'feeds,' can be harvested by content
      aggregators designed for podcasts, such as iPodder or iPodderX,
      or by other aggregators, such as iTunes, all of which can download
      'subscriptions' either on demand or at predetermined intervals."

      Web directory style, one could go further as follows:
      Podcasting > Educational Podcasting > Coursecasting

      Most podcasts, such as those available through the Apple iTunes
      Music Store, are not educational. Among the educational variety,
      in many subject matter areas coursecasting may be the main
      application, that is, recording class lectures as they happen
      for students and others to review. Other podcasts could be
      special events, students' spoken homework, or one-off lectures
      related to one's class, as sharable, reuseable learning objects.

      There is also a new generation of Web services called, for
      imprecise convenience, Web 2.0. The wiki below points to
      Flickr, Writely, Del.icio.us, and Technorati, considering
      their use for research and publications:

      Podcasting, Coursecasting, & Web 2.0 Technologies for Research
      Podcasting for EFL wiki

      Members may wish to discuss these technologies further.
