  1. 1. For Students @ Mt Alvernia College
  2. 2.  A podcast is a series of recordings available on the internet that are intended for use with a digital media device.  The name is a combination of two words – iPod and broadcast although it is technically inaccurate (you do not need an iPod).  The difference between a podcast and an mp3 is the way in which the user receives the file (through an RSS feed for podcasts).  Technically, today we’re learning to make mp3s.
  3. 3. Methods to record a sound file: Using a microphone or headset Using a sound recording device You can also use a mobile phone although getting the files off may require a little fiddling ◦ Eg iPhone – email to yourself; download; open in Adobe Soundbooth; Save as type mp3. ◦ http://media-convert.com/ (converts online for free)

  6. 6.  Do delete a portion ◦ Use the select tool ( I ) to select what you don’t want ◦ Hit delete on your keyboard  To Move a selection ◦ Use the time shift tool to drag it into place ( )  To rearrange the order of parts ◦ Select the part to remove ◦ Edit > Cut ◦ Project > New Audio Track > Click in new track > Paste (Time shift to move things around)

  9. 9. You are only limited by your imagination
  10. 10.  Sorry but you droning on about a topic for 10 minutes probably isn’t going to excite anyone  Instead, prepare some questions and have someone else ask them (then edit in your answers – like you were interviewed)  Get a peer who knows about the topic to sit and have a professional conversation with you  Interview someone
