Berkeley Students Allegedly Think Podcasts As Important As Email, Wireless Internet

30 10 2007

Talk about burying the best part of a story (yeah, it’s a company press release), but a recent press release by Cisco claims a study at the University of California-Berkeley reveals that incoming freshman think podcasting is just as important as both wireless Internet and email.  We’re still trying to confirm if students were directly asked to compare podcasting to these other technologies, but if it’s true it’s a big validation for podcasting in education and the podcasting industry in general.  We reported recently on the new UC Berkeley podcast channel on You Tube, and this new (alleged) study explains why this university decided to lead the charge in spreading its educational podcasts far and wide.
