Conclusions: Faculty who categorized themselves as distance education teachers had more use of podcasts than the students in the same category. Faculty and students within their first six years at an institution were the most active in using podcasts. Most respondents completing the survey foresaw podcasting becoming a clear leader in distance education and in other educational applications. Although podcasting is a simplified recording and playback device it doesn’t have high recognition or use from mainstream educators.
