Show Notes

In this episode Erik and Kris give advice on video editing software for educators, using Medium as an educational blogging platform and the tech industry’s increasing interest in education technology. This episode also introduces a new ‘Meta’ segment. The co-hosts talk about their experience podcasting so far and their observations about different podcast formats. They also talk about the assumptions around the human attention span, the revolution of the spoken word, and why it might be ok to have longer recorded lectures.
