Abstract
Students’ own iPods and iTunes freeware provide cost-effective enhancement of course accessibility to students with cognitive impairments. Our pilot study uses iPods to increase course engagement by asking introductory-level psychology students to prepare and share biopsychology mnemonics, and upper-level seminar students to create podcasts of interviews with psychology alumni.
