QuickTime 2 RSS

Apple's education department is developing the QuickTime 2 RSS technology, which will allow university professors to record their slides, notes, and details to student assignments while they are delivered to the students in the lecture hall, according to a new report. The technology in QuickTime 2 RSS can turn the "performance" into files suitable for podcast and automatically upload them, according to the Guardian Limited. The technology is similar to the system currently used at Stanford University, which provides "downloads of faculty lectures, campus events, performances, book readings, music recorded by Stanford students and podcasts of Stanford football games" via Stanford on iTunes. Despite the advancing technology, many fear the lack of student lecture attendance, as more and more content is posted online.
