iPhys Series 2 gets the go-ahead

We’re very pleased to report that City of Sun­der­land Col­lege have com­mis­sioned us to do a sec­ond series of our pop­u­lar iPhys Dig­i­tal Revi­sion Notes in Biol­o­gy and Phys­i­ol­o­gy — this time on Biol­o­gy topics.

The first set of 23 pod­casts (or mini-pro­grammes or seg­ments, what­ev­er you would like to call them) cov­ered a set of Phys­i­ol­o­gy top­ics and was start­ed last Sep­tem­ber. We com­plet­ed it recent­ly, nice­ly in time for stu­dents to use them in revi­sion for upcom­ing exam­i­na­tions. The series can be down­loaded from the course web site. As they include pro­duc­tion library music (they would have been rather bor­ing oth­er­wise) they required a PRS/MCPS pod­cast­ing licence but this was very afford­able thanks to the num­ber of items, the num­ber of stu­dents and the fact that the dis­tri­b­u­tion is known.

Now we have the go-ahead for anoth­er set of around the same size, this time cov­er­ing a sim­i­lar num­ber of Biol­o­gy top­ics. Once again they will be writ­ten by Lynne Hardy and Car­ol Whalen Grif­fiths, and we hope to have them writ­ten and record­ed in time for the new aca­d­e­m­ic year in September.

We’ll be select­ing a new set of music beds for the new series and in con­trast with the electronic/contemporary feel of the iPhys beds, we may choose some­thing a lit­tle more organ­ic for the new series.

What we do need to do is to think about what to call them. They could still be part of  “iPhys”, which might be just as well, as “iBio” does­n’t quite roll off the tongue so well…
