A 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

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

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

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

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

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 :-)
