Professor Wilkins Becomes a ‘Classcasting’ Pioneer on ‘CALI Radio’
The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) recognized the potential for allowing law students to use some otherwise "lost" travel time for law study and launched its own "podcast" service called "CALI Radio." At a special website students can download these conversations just like the podcasting sites distributing other material. Instead of calling it "podcasting" it's being called "classcasting." As part of the site’s official launch, Professor Scott Burnham from the University of Montana School of Law and Professor Larrie Wilkins, William R. Neale Professor of Law at the Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis, were the first two featured "guests." Prof. Wilkins’ conversation is about the famous Palsgraf case. The conversation is available at the following site: http://cali_radio.classcaster.org/blog/
Prof. Wilkins, who has been a national leader in the area of technology and education, taught the law school's first course to include a synchronous online component allowing “face to face” communication between students and professor via web-based video conferencing by participating in an Indiana University pilot program using the “"Macromedia Breeze Live” software. He also gave a presentation on distance education at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) conference in July, 2005.
