Although podcasting may not be appropriate for detailed, step-by-step
oriented instructions, it can be helpful if someone explained the full
capabilities of software, expounding on what it can do, how this and that
can be applied.
Podcasting is more for conceptual information than anything else -- because
you listen to podcasts while you're doing something else. I listen to
podcasts when I'm playing basketball, mowing my lawn, driving, working out.
I feel it is a waste of my time if I'm not taking advantage of a podcast, if
I'm able to do so.
