Abstract
This paper probes a moment in the history of Media Studies education. My study enters iTunes U to explore how teaching, learning and scholarship are defined and operate in this environment. Podcasting is neither celebrated nor vilified, but situated within a much longer history of sound in education. Instead of positioning the iPod as a rupture in music, commerce and downloading practices – thereby triggering the historical redundancy of analogue sound – this platform becomes an opportunity to reconfigure the function of sound in media education. The interest remains, not Media Studies 2.0 or 1.0, but media literacy. Such a phrase and study does not require a designation or an imperative for platform migration. The development of media literacy remains contiguous, gradual, considered, contemporary, passionate and planned.
