Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Podcasting in the Nonprofit Classroom

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in February 2020 caused universities, professors, and students to adjust both instruction and learning techniques. Undergraduate college enrollment unexpectedly shifted from face-to-face instruction to remote learning. Podcasts show promise in helping expand the confines of the classroom with their feasibility to execute quality learning experiences. For podcasting as a teaching tool to be effective, students must perceive podcasts as interactive tools helpful to their academic performance. In this study, we test the acceptance and usability of podcasts in the nonprofit management classroom.
