Audio Blogging for PC
Houston Community CollegeCIC CentralRuben Duran
Podcasting is online audio or video content that is delivered via an RSS feed. Many students on Campus have some form of digital audio playback device, i.e. an mp3 player or iPod where digital media can be stored and re-played. The power of podcasting is that users can
listen to exactly what they want, when they want, and where they want.
Debunk - podcasting does NOT require:
For more see Shelly Drumm and Ruben Duran presentation:“Podcasting to create dynamic,
multimedia learning environments”
Users had the option to have that content delivered directly to their home computers, and ultimately, their digital media device or MP3 player.

iTunes(Mac & Windows)For anyone using one of the 12 million iPods, iTunes is likely the software they use to manage their digital music library. iTunes University is rapidly becoming the podcasting platform of choice of many higher education institutions, and it’s coming to an HCC campus near you.
From the Tools Menu> Add Feed > then enter the a Title for the Podcasts and the URL (podcast url).
“A search engine that can find podcasts according to the words spoken during them!” New York Times, July 2005.
Odeo is a free service that allows users to record and save personal audio files and create "radio like" channels to share with others. Users also can record audio directly from a cellphone or telephone.
You are welcome to use this service. However, we suggest you wait for HCC to make iTunes University available to faculty.
One can imagine HCC classes that are digitally recorded and then made available as podcast notes. Students can download the audio for that class and listen to them while they are riding the bus back home. iTunes U* is a free, hosted service for colleges and universities that provides easy access to their educational content, including lectures and interviews. Through iTunes U, students can download content to their Macs or PCs, regardless of their location. They can listen to and view that content on their Mac or PC, or transfer it to iPod for listening or viewing on the go. Faculty can easily post and change content on their own without impacting the IT department. And, of course, students can upload their own content to share with professors or with the class.
It is a Windows only application. It does not work on the Mac.
Next enter the URL for the server. http://18.104.22.168
Leave all other settings as is. Click OK
