    This is a wonderful idea that would be really beneficial for the students. Teachers would also get an insight into how the students are doing the problems, what they might be doing wrong, and how to help them understand the concept.

    I think this would be great from the students that are absent from school, to download a podcast from that day and get the instruction they might need to complete a task. The only drawback that I can see would be those students without access to the technology. Working in a lower socio-economic school I know that a lot my students didn’t. One way it might work is to record introductions to new concepts and let the students take home the lesson. But that also creates the problem of will they return the technology.

    This helps the instructor see what misconceptions a student has of a particular concept and correct it.
