This is the authors' final draft of the paper published as European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning, 2010, vol. 1. The published version is available from the publisher's website at: http://www.eurodl.org/In this paper, we urge practitioners to consider the potential of podcasting for teaching, learning and\ud assessment. Our perspective is drawn from research on IMPALA (Informal Mobile Podcasting And\ud Learning Adaptation), which showed that there is a range of successful podcasting approaches for students\ud on campus. After briefly surveying the background literature, we provide examples of three approaches,\ud from three different universities: 1) helping students to prepare presentations and assessed work, 2)\ud offering feedback from staff on students' assessed work, and 3) assisting undergraduates to make the\ud transition from school or college to university. Finally, we would like readers to consider how podcasting\ud approaches like these can be converted for distance education. On the evidence available to date from\ud IMPALA and other studies, we feel confident in predicting that podcasting will be integrated more and\ud more into distance education, to the immense benefit of the long distance learner
