Two Ways to ImplementPodcasting in a Traditional Classroom
  • Choose a medium for delivery that is appropriate to your technology skill level.
    • Podcasting: Use free or inexpensive audio recording software on a computer to record your voice.

PowerCasting is a term coined by Dr. Steve to describe an easy & creative alternative to traditional podcasting.

PowerPoint and Podcasting
  • “True” podcasting:
    • Audio (possible video).
    • Syndication capabilities (RSS feed subscription).
  • PowerCasting (PowerPoint podcasting):
    • Easy way to add “podcasting” to your teaching.
    • Focus on content, not on the tool.
    • Utilize presentations you already have.

    • Edit the sound for each slide individually.
    • Begin re-recording from a particular slide, stopping at any point.
