Videos, Podcasts and Broadcasts


Videos are an excellent approach to discussing news items and some new developments are best demonstrated using this approach (i.e. robotics). Podcasts can be downloaded to mobile devices or played thorough iTunes. Although videos and podcasts cannot be used as a basis for a Portfolio, it is usually possible to find a news item on the same topic and use it as a basis for the Portfolio. The video can be used as one of the sources in the bibliography.
