    • What is a Podcast?
      • A podcast is a multimedia file distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers
      • The term “Podcasting” is a synonym for audioblogging
      • What makes a podcast different from other digital audio formats is its ability to be downloaded automatically using software capable of reading feeds like RSS or Atom
      • Example on iTunes
    • What is RSS?
      • Podcast audio uses syndication feed enclosures which pass the address of a media file to the RSS aggregator
      • RSS 2.0 stands for Really Simple Syndication and is a type of web feed, a data format used for serving users' frequently updated content
      • Websites syndicate the web feed, which allows users to subscribe to it, like a newspaper subscription
      • http://odeo.com (business section)
      • RSS Resources
    • How does RSS work with Podcasting?
      • A Podcaster publishes her podcast on a blog using syndication feed enclosures (RSS)
      • Visitors (like students) to the site can use an aggregator program (feed reader) to subscribe to the podcast
    • Teaching and Learning with Podcasting
      • Course content dissemination
      • Classroom recording
      • Field recording
        • Audio journaling, interviews, observations, learning experience
        • Audio research (in field/discipline)
      • Study support
        • via repeated listening to audio content
    • How might this improve teaching and learning?
      • Course Content Dissemination
        • Interviews
        • Music samples
        • Foreign language passages
      • Time Shifting
        • Expanding the classroom, time on task
        • Review capability
        • iPod technology offers the potential to shift the proportion of class time devoted to learning that benefits from face-to-face interactions between faculty and students, and shift preparatory work to outside times and locations. (Leland quoted in Blaisdell, 2006)
    • 24/7 Education
      • Create a learning environment that extends well outside the boundaries of the classroom
      • Create community among students
      • Review Capability
        • Course lectures can be dense and difficult to process in just one sitting
        • Podcasts allow for review, review, and more review
    • Creating a podcast
      • Recording tools
        • Macs
          • Garage Band (apple)

    • Tips
      • Before you start recording, think about what you want to say, and organize your podcast accordingly
      • Make notes, prepare your interviews (if any), and try to improvise as little as possible
        • While a completely spontaneous show can sound good if you’ve got the knack, the best podcasters prepare their shows in advance and work hard to provide interesting content
        • Kirk McElhearn’s 8 Rules of Effective Podcasting
    • Copyright & Legal Issues
      • Copyright law is relevant to podcasts because it applies to creative and expressive works and copyright attaches automatically
      • Rights and permissions need to be secured for material included
