SunMt educational podcasts in the now
Each podcast is designed as a study unit that can simply be dragged off SunMt
website (
after payment as noted at bottom of this page. Click here) and uploaded to another
computer or a whole classroom of computers and/or ipods.

All podcasts can be played by iPods, iTunes or Quicktime actual size,
full computer screen or projected much larger onto a white wall.
All are very
short and fit easily into class time constraints. (Lengths are noted as 2:36 = 2 minutes,
36 seconds.)
Each can be used to spark intensive, instructive classroom discussion, a
term paper and/or research assignment on the subject presented. Also as the inspir-
ation for student-composed songs, skits and poems. Also as the introduction for inviting
Elfie to make presentations at your school. See SunMt’s campus page. And for your school
to purchase SunMt longer docu-poems. Each podcast has an associated still which also
can be downloaded to illustrate student and/or classroom projects.
