Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper presents a critical evaluation of recent literature on the development and use of podcast: for online information, entertainment and educational purposes. In some jurisdiction, online learning tools like YouTube, Podcast, Zoom and Microsoft teams were predicated by the recent COVID-19-pandemic. In contrast, in some jurisdiction, it strengthened the use of these online tools. Given this, this paper seeks to compare and contrast adopting podcasts' pedagogical tool by University teachers from both the developed clime-United Kingdom and developing clime- Nigeria.

For these reasons, two critical questions proposed for this paper are: what is the current state of educational podcasts for teaching in Nigeria and the United Kingdom? Why are podcasts not a popular teaching tool in Nigerian universities? Thus, this paper aims to evaluate these questions to provide insights on the effectiveness of podcast, particularly educational podcast by embarking on an in-depth Interview with lecturers in the aforementioned Jurisdictions.
