What is a Podcast?Why Should I Podcast?

A podcast:

  • Is an electronic audio file (but can contain images and video)

  • Can be subscribed to through something called RSS (Really Simple Syndication)

  • Is listened to or watched on a computer or mp3 player


A podcast (continued):

  • Can be a “traditional” radio program or media broadcast, but can be specialized for whatever purpose you want (entertainment, education, etc.)

  • Allows anyone with access to podcasting tools to spread their message to anyone else on the Internet


Why should I podcast?

  • It’s relatively cheap to create them

  • It’s something that can be accessed anytime and anywhere you have an Internet connection

  • Everyone’s doing it, so I should do it too :-) (but seriously, many people including students use iPods and other mp3 players, so why not try to use them educationally?)


Some things to keep in mind:

  • What is the content? What message or concept am I trying to get across?

  • What is my instructional goal?

  • What is the context for podcasting? How does this relate to other things I’m teaching?


More things to keep in mind:

  • Try to plan your podcasts as much as possible (scripting or storyboarding really helps)

  • Make the podcast as short as you can. If it starts getting long, consider making chapters

  • Make it interesting and high-energy


Reference Links

  • Please note: this is the Internet, so I can’t vouch that these are “the definitive” links for reference (or if they’ll exist that long, so you may find better ones yourself :-)
