Podcasting: Introduction Podcasting is used to post audio and video files onto the internet for instant use. Podcasts have web feeds known as RSS- Really Simple Syndication which are sent to podcatching software such as iTunes.
Podcasts can be used in multiple media forms from your home computer to your phone.
Podcast History "Podcasting is a term that was only coined in 2004, combining two words: iPod and broadcasting. Ironically, this definition is somewhat of a misnomer since neither component is completely accurate. Neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod or other portable player. In fact, podcasts can be listened to on any mp3 enabled device including a desktop computer. The name association came about simply because Apple Computer's iPod was the best-selling portable digital audio player when podcasting began."
