Feature Articles

Little information is available regarding the value of podcasting in nursing education. This mixed-methods study described nursing students’ (n = 101) perceptions of podcasted materials, the benefits of podcasting, and when and where students used podcasted materials. Students (86%) believed podcasts enriched their learning, and 95% reported podcasts as valuable tools in the learning environment. Most students (94%) would recommend podcasting in other courses and accessed podcast materials 3 times per week. More than half of the students (55%) accessed podcast materials in multiple places (ie, in the car, in the home, and at school).
