My level 4 module on Functional Analysis, as taught in 2006-7 and 2007-8, is now available from the Nottingham U-NoW page

http://unow.nottingham.ac.uk/resources/resource.aspx?hid=bd32d53b-3c12-ac19-176b-d9e112731951#

In 2006-7 I taught the module using my tablet PC and made annotated slides available after the lectures. I also recorded the audio from each lecture, but not screencasts: I only started screencasting this academic year.

In 2007-8 I tried an experiment where I used the 2006-7 materials. Instead of standard lectures, I told students to read the annotated slides and listen to audio from 2006-7 up to a certain point, and we then met for question and answer sessions/tutorials/workshops instead.

I found that this worked a bit better for the small fourth year classs than a similar experiment did for a larger third year class.

See my first case study for more on the good and bad points of this methodology: this case study is available at http://www.maths.nott.ac.uk/personal/jff/Papers/pdf/podcasting.pdf
