Podcasting Needs Help!

So it has been determined that in itself, Podcasting Has No ‘Inherent’ Pedagogic Value.

“Podcasting does not contain any inherent value. It is only valuable inasmuch as it helps the instructor and students reach their educational goals, by facilitating thoughtful, engaging learning activities that are designed to work in support of those goals.”

The lecture in a classroom even (delivered live) has much more interactivity and subtext which a standalone audio file cannot carry. Not so much the problem of the podcast itself, perhaps, the device(s) lack the versatility?
