  • Suggestions for ApplicationsRecordings of lectures for those students unable to attend the lecture in person.Audio recordings of textbook text, made available for students by the chapter, would allow students to "read" or review texts while walking or driving to class. It could also be a significant aid to auditory learners.Students could record and post project audio and video interviews which could be automatically downloaded to an instructors laptop or MP3 player for review.The same could be done for language lessons where students forward audio of their pronunciation dialogues. They could even swap these with peers for peer review before turning in the final form to the instructor.Oral reports recorded and archived.Musical resumes. Music critique.Libraries of bird sounds that the budding ornithologist could receive via seasonal subscription and take with them to the field.
  • Surprising Consequences
  • There are dozens of ways to create and maintain a blog. Some are free and some cost some money. I’ll give you some suggestions for blogging tools. If you already have a blog, then you can just adapt it to use with your podcast.
  • One of the great things about listening to podcasts is that you can subscribe to what’s called an RSS feed. Once you’re subscribed, your podcatcher will check the feed regularly for new episodes. When a new episode is posted, the podcatcher will automatically download the audio file for you to listen to.As a podcaster, you create and update your RSS feed for your listeners to subscribe to. Don’t worry. This is easier than it sounds. I’ll show you what you need to do, but first let’s talk about what an RSS feed is.An RSS feed is nothing more than a specially formatted text file. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. This is just a set of rules that outlines how the information in the feed fill needs to be formatted.Before you start sweating, you don’t need to worry about understanding RSS or writing out the feed file by hand. There are ways to create it automatically. You won’t be writing code or trying to remember the RSS format. This will be done for you.In a blog feed, the RSS feed text file includes a list of the recent posts and information about each one such as title, date, author, etc. An RSS feed for a podcast is the same, except it also includes information about your MP3 file such as its web address and file size. The podcatcher uses this information to find and download the audio file.Each time you post a new podcast episode, you need to update your RSS feed with information about it so your listeners’ podcatchers will detect and download the file.NOTE: RSS feeds files are written in a language called XML. I just mention this so that you know that if the term XML is mentioned in relation to podcasting, it’s probably referring to the RSS or podcast feed.

  • PODCASTING
    Robert Heinrich

  • Common Misconceptions
    A podcast can only be listened to on an iPod
    A podcast can only be listed to through iTunes

  • Questions You Are Probably Asking Yourself…
    How does podcasting or vodcasting challenge the current "talking head" model of classroom lectures ? If all lectures are available via video and audio, do students need to go to class? How often? Why? How can they be kept in class?
    Who owns the content, the school, the instructor, the user? Can this content be used outside of the university community? How is it protected or secured to the owner or subscriber?
    Who's going to edit the content? What are the guidelines for editing? What's real - what's not?
    How is copyrighted material tracked and/or verified?
  • Speech to text?
    Acrobat allows for text to speech
    Podzinger
    Search engine for podcasts and video, is created through the use of speech recognition software. It allows searching either audio or video or both.
    Results are displayed with brief sections of the transcript, which can be played using the player displayed on the left of each entry or by clicking a word in the transcript.

  • How to Post a Podcast
    Making it available via the Web
    Posting your file(s) on a server with a publicly accessible URL.
    Post to a WebBlog
    Create an RSS feed.
    To accomplish this, you must post your MP3 file in a web folder on a web server. Then create the feed. FeedBurneris one free tool you can use.
    Making it available via iTunes
    Submitting the URL for your RSS feed to iTunes
  • Posting to a Blog
    Your podcast is basically just a blog with audio. Podcasting uses the same feed technology as many blogs. Your audience receives the audio file through the feed in addition to the text.
    Usually each blog entry/post is one episode of your podcast. The post consists of your show notes (an outline of the episode’s contents), links to any related information or sources and probably a link to the MP3 file for the episode. The feed from your blog tells the subscriber’s podcatcher where to download the audio file.
  • RSS
    One of the great things about listening to podcasts is that you can subscribe to what’s called an RSS feed. Once you’re subscribed, your podcatcher will check the feed regularly for new episodes. When a new episode is posted, the podcatcher will automatically download the audio file for you to listen to.
    An RSS feed is nothing more than a specially formatted text file. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.
    You don’t need to worry about understanding RSS or writing out the feed file by hand. There are ways to create it automatically.
