    • 4. developed approaches to designing, producing and distributing podcasts and other forms of digital media
    • 5. awareness of the diverse designed applications for educational podcasting and the less planned opportunities afforded by digital media in enhancing learner engagement.

  • 6. The 5 minute
    podcast
    - a demo and analysis
    A demo podcast was constructed involving those present.
    This can be found at: http://alt.podomatic.com/player/web/2010-04-14T07_32_07-07_00

  • 11. Characteristics
    Distributed media – usually audio, but increasingly video, PDFs
    Accessible -  Internet distributed, downloadable media (especially digital audio) 
    Automatically delivered - Simple syndication technology (RSS + media enclosures) that allows interested parties to subscribe to published content ('feeds') from a particular supplier
    Managed by the user - aggregation software designed to gather feeds
    Device neutral - media players, both software and hardware (eg iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp on the PC and MP3 players like iRivers, iPods, Creative Zens, etc)
    Personal - making strong connections across and beyond the learning environment;
    Social – embedded voices, ideas, questions and knowledge shared;
    Flexible (time and location neutral) – hence 'time shifting', 'space shifting', mobile, flexible learning.
    Optional characteristics
    Automatically delivered - Simple syndication technology (RSS + media enclosures) that allows interested parties to subscribe to published content ('feeds') from a particular supplier;
    User controlled - aggregation software designed to gather feeds; made and gathered at the user's discretion.

  • 12. Definitions
    Review your own definition now...
    Strict, technical definition:
    “the serial distribution via RSS feeds of locally created, downloadable, digital media episodes, usually audio, to a niche audience of subscribers”
    An open definition for education“asynchronous digital voices”
    It doesn’t matter too much:
    What can you do with digital audio?
    by Colleen AF Venable (2009)
  • 13. Do I need a podcast feed?
    Those attending wanted to know about podcast feeds. Does a podcast have to be delivered using a feed or can it be delivered like other digital documents?
    An impromptu presentation was given in response to this question (see the next slide). This is also now available as a slidecast on Slideshare.net
