iPod therefore I am: Using PC Videos to Aid the Teaching of the History of Political Philosophy

By Pete Woodcock and Glenn Duckworth


This article outlines our experiences at the University of Huddersfield of\ud (a) producing and using mini-lectures on the history of political philosophy\ud that were available to students as MP4 and progressive download PC video\ud files (and MP3 audio files), and (b) the student feedback on these files\ud which will help future development. This article largely avoids pedagogical\ud issues regarding the use of technology in teaching and focuses more on\ud student feedback and use of these technologies, along with practical issues\ud regarding the production and hosting of these teaching tools
