the best part about technology
  is how it brings us together
together with a common goal
and around common interests
                          acnatta
podcasting is a mash­up of
   iPod + broadcasting
podcasts are audio files that start 
their public lives on the Internet
podcasts are designed to be 
downloaded onto a media player
 and listened to at a later date
(not all podcasts are like this)
podcasts are changing 
  broadcast media
CBC Radio now offers many of 
their popular shows “on demand”
using the broadcast model:
podcasts are released on a 
     regular schedule
special software can be used to 
notify you when new podcasts 
         are available
this is referred to as
“subscribing to a podcast”
the ability to “subscribe” to a 
    podcast is important
it allows you to “push” content to 
 your visitors without waiting for 
   them to visit your Web site
there are podcasts about knitting, 
   wine, technology, art, dogs, 
         pottery, politics
          (but apparently ...
do a Web search for “podcast” 
  and your favourite subject 
in 2004 Art Mobs tried
   something new
they hacked the MoMA
and produced their
own audio guides of the
Museum of Modern Art
and they encouraged others to 
make their own guides as well
        http://mod.blogs.com/art_mobs/
free audio guides are now 
   available in many
 museums and galleries
many are listed at MuseumPods
   www.museumpods.com
also: AGO and the ROM
         http://www.artmatters.ca/blog/
 http://www.rom.on.ca/media/podcasts/index.php
so how
does it
 work?
most sites will allow you to
listen to a podcast right now
but using a reader will allow you 
 to download the podcast and 
         listen to it later
to subscribe to a podcast you 
   need a “news reader”
most modern browsers can also 
  be used as a news reader
   but iTunes is popular too
subscribing to a podcast:
      1. go to to the podcast site
      2. look for the orange icon
                3. click it...
the latest podcast
 will be downloaded to your 
computer you can listen to it... 
          whenever
when a new episode is available 
 it will be downloaded and you 
  can listen to it ... whenever

podcasting is not for dial-up
   internet connections
audio files are big and take a
   long time to download
(there will be media players
available at the gallery for people
   to enjoy the tours in-house)
listening to podcasts is pretty easy
        when you know how
making podcasts is pretty easy
 too... when you know how
ready? let’s go!
podcasting in ten easy steps
1. decide what your
  podcast is about
is it an interview?
does it tell a story about a thing?
    is it a “response” piece?
interviews: Spark on CBC radio
           www.cbc.ca/spark
stories about things:
  Every Object.net
http://www.everyobject.net/user.php?id=1
response pieces: Art Mobs
     http://mod.blogs.com/art_mobs
2. define your audience
(and their attention span)
will they listen to it on your site?
              in the car?
do they know lots about your topic?
on the Web: the ROM
http://www.rom.on.ca/media/podcasts/index.php
                includes video
in the car: AGO lectures
3. write a script
this prevents you from rambling
    on and on and on and on
              AND
  helps to reduce stage fright
    when you ...
4. assemble your hardware
computer
    microphone
      speakers
Internet connection
5. install your software
audacity to record and edit audio
(the rest are Web-based tools that don’t need to be installed)
6. record your podcast
7. add music for excitement
       http://creativecommons.org
8. upload your podcast
9. add the text transcript
for dial-up listeners and to
improve search engine rankings
10. promote your podcast!
But we want
   to add
PICTURES!
pictures are like little
 parties for the eyes
Yes, we want
little parties!
adding pictures changes a
 podcast into a vodcast
you can pair podcasts with Web
  pages that have images for
      visual engagement
The Ten Easy Steps of
             Podcasting
1.decide what your        6.record your podcast
 podcast is about         7....
The Web is now your oyster!
  Live long and prosper!
