  4. 4. <ul><li>Podcasting is a method of delivering regularly updated audio content (typically mp3 format). </li></ul><ul><li>Emerging in 2004, podcasting grew out of the successful subscription & distribution model pioneered by the blogging movement based upon RSS. In this sense a podcast began as a form of audio blogging. </li></ul><ul><li>The term &quot;podcast&quot; is a mash up between &quot;IPod&quot;, Apple computers portable player and &quot;broadcasting&quot;. While an iPod is not necessary for either producing or subscribing to podcasts the term has sort of stuck. </li></ul><ul><li>Vblogging uses the same RSS based subscription/distribution model to deliver video content. Hence the mash up name Video-Blog or Vblog. </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress
  5. 5. <ul><li>RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary. RSS was originally developed as a method for distributing and syndicating content from blogs, online journals, websites and news sources. </li></ul><ul><li>Around 2004 enclosures were added to RSS which highlight links to mp3 files so they are filtered out and harvested in aggregators. </li></ul><ul><li>Simply placing a link to an mp3 file or embedding a video in a blog does not constitute a podcast or vblog, it’s all about syndication using RSS </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress
  6. 6. <ul><li>A feed reader is a tool for subscribing to and aggregating RSS </li></ul><ul><li>feeds from multiple sources and displaying them in one place. </li></ul><ul><li>Types of feed readers (RSS Aggregators) </li></ul><ul><li>Stand-alone Desktop Programs - e.g. awasu or SharpReader </li></ul><ul><li>Web Browsers- e.g. Firefox, IE, Safari </li></ul><ul><li>Email clients e.g. Thunderbird, Outlook. </li></ul><ul><li>Web-based - e.g. Bloglines or Google Reader </li></ul><ul><li>Start page aggregators - e.g. protopage or pageflakes </li></ul><ul><li>RSS is the connecting fabric of web2.0 services, providing the conduit for information flows between distributed networks. </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress
  7. 7. <ul><li>The tweaking of the RSS standard in 2004 so that mp3 files would be highlighted saw the emergence of dedicated podcasting aggregators or podcatching software as they became known. </li></ul><ul><li>Podcatching software or aggregators allow subscription to podcasts/Vblogs using RSS. Aggregator software runs in background and automatically retrieves the new audio files when they become available and saves them to your hard drive or MP3 player. </li></ul><ul><li>Some examples are:- </li></ul><ul><li>Apple's iTunes - Apple's aggregator for the iPod/iphone </li></ul><ul><li>Juice Podcast Receiver </li></ul><ul><li>MyPodder - a podcatching client you can load onto an MP3 player </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress
  8. 8. <ul><li>Typically there will be 2 RSS feeds from a podcast/vblog. </li></ul><ul><li>One for the all the episode content posted </li></ul><ul><li>One which highlights the audio/video content to allow it to be downloaded </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes there may only be the one podcast/vblog feed. </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress Podcast Feeds Blog Feeds

  10. 10. <ul><li>One click subscription </li></ul><ul><li>M ost of the popular podcast aggregators such as iTunes have streamlined the process so that one only needs to click the icon denoting their aggregator and they will be automatically be subscribed to the podcast. </li></ul>Introduction to Podcasting & Vblogging in Education Using Wordpress
