I just received (as many of you might have also) a poll in regards to pod-casts or on-line education. I know I have participated in pod-casts from other EMS forums before and found them very interesting and enlightening, especially when they included international discussion.

I do not know if it is even feasible due to prohibitive costs, time, broad band, etc.. to be able to have one sponsored per EMT Life or not or even if the interest would be there?..

Just a thought.....

I'd be interested in listening and maybe helping support it... Don't know if I would have anyhting to add due to being so new to everything...

I think that would be outstanding and greatly beneficial to everyone from listeners to even the people making the podcasts.

I added a poll to this thread, and the CL's will take it under advisement while I research what it would take.

Anyone who has experience with podcasts (making, not listening to them) please send me a PM.

Thanks

This would be a great idea. It would even be interesting to have a civil debate as we see so many with different opinions here. Perhaps thoughts would come accross better spoken than here in a typewritten forum discussion.

I love the idea, and support it, but how would it work?

The podcasts would not be for debate...

They would be solely for educational purposes.

vBulletin does have a podcast module that can be added to this version of their software. I think it would be handy to have a collection of good pod casts available, especially if we could download them (I like to study while on shift).

Who would make the podcasts? My vote is for Rent, Vid, and Vene.

I'd second that. Also, I'm certain there are other sources of premade podcasts?

I'm interested in hearing from those that voted no. Feel free to PM me if you want, but I would like to hear your reasons for voting that way.

Those that voted no are probably the same ones who are against furthering their education.

Could be very interesting. I'd listen in.

Here's some ideas I got for different segments.

1. EMS related news.
2. Fill us in on research papers that were recently released. How findings affect the way we treat patients.
3. Lesson of the week: a detailed overview of a certain topic/term/procedure.
4. Industry spotlight: A look at different EMS agencies, their protocols, how they do business.

that's all I have now, I'll post more if I think of them.

ffemt8978 Think of the moderated debate potential. It would be educational and well you could sell tickets to make money. :p

But actually getting well prepared podcasts on subjects would be very educational. We have many highly educated people on here. Maybe even require it to be reviewed for accuracy prior to allowing it to be on.

And if by the off chance we got podcasts and were able to upload them to ipods and mp3 players.. I could justify buying a new mp3 player as a educational study tool :]
