What Is a Podcast?

  • podcast:

    • An audio (and possibly video) recording that can be listened to (and viewed) via an iPod, other MP3 player, a computer, or a mobile computing device.

    • Many podcasters will offer an RSS feed to alert users of new podcasts available at the site.

  • Supplement to class activities:

    • Remediation for slower learners.

    • Enrichment for advanced or highly motivated learners.

Popularity of podcasts

Popularity of Podcasts

  • Study by the Pew Trusts (Rainie & Madden, 2005):

    • 29% of all iPod users have downloaded a podcast.

    • Nearly half of all college-age iPod owners have downloaded a podcast.

  • iTunes University currently distributes thousands of free college-level podcasts from over eight hundred universities.


Podcasts improve student learning

Podcasts Improve Student Learning

  • Researchers are beginning to find that podcasting can improve student learning outcomes.

    • McGarr (2009) suggests that podcasting can improve student learning by increasing student motivation and engagement.

    • McKinney, Dyck, and Luber (2009) found that students watching a lecture podcast significantly outperformed a group of students who only viewed the lecture in person.


Two ways to implement podcasting in a traditional classroom

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: Easily record a lecture within an existing PowerPoint presentation.

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


Powerpoint and 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.


Narrate an entire slideshow

Narrate an Entire Slideshow

  • PowerPoint will allow you to record continuous narration (lecture) as you run the slideshow as you usually would in class.

  • As you narrate, the time you spend on each slide can also be recorded.


Edit the narration

Edit the Narration

  • In reality, PowerPoint records a separate narration for each slide. This allows you to:

    • Preview each slide narration individually.

    • Edit the sound for each slide individually.

    • Begin re-recording from a particular slide, stopping at any point.


Adjusting recording settings

Adjusting Recording Settings

Right-click the volume icon in the system tray. Select “sound.”

Set recording quality.

Set recording level.


Steps in recording narration

Steps in Recording Narration

  • Set microphone level (in Office 2007).

Steps in recording narration2

Steps in Recording Narration

  • After you hit “OK,” the presentation will run as usual.

    • Recording begins immediately. Begin speaking.

    • Advance slides by clicking as usual.

    • If you are using custom animation, click during narration as usual.

  • Hit ESC to end early, OR record until you hit the end of the presentation.

Steps in Recording Narration

  • PowerPoint will ask if you want to save the slide timings.

Before recording in PP 2010.

Definitely

After recording in PP 2007.


Hint when recording narration

Hint When Recording Narration

HINT: On each slide, pause for1 second before and after speaking to ensure all ofyour words are recorded.


When a student listens

When a Student Listens

  • When the slideshow is played back:

    • The presentation automatically advances using your saved slide timings (if you saved them).

    • If a student begins playing the slideshow from a particular slide, the narration begins from that point.

    • A student can click to advance the slide early, clipping your sound file.

Learner Control


Editing narration

Editing Narration

  • Navigate to the slide you want to re-record.

  • Select slideshow—record narration.

    • Continue recording on subsequent slides.

    • Press the ESC key to end recording.


Powerpoint extras

PowerPoint Extras

  • You can also add any of these PowerPoint interactive “extras”:

    • Use animation to build slides and maintain learner attention.

    • Navigate to a Website using an action button.

    • Link to files (documents, spreadsheets).

    • Embed or link to a video.

    • Use animation to provide embedded questions about the lesson, and triggered animation to feedback.
