Podcast presentation

  1. 1. Podcasting<br />
  2. 2. What is podcasting?<br />The term “podcasting” is a combination of the words<br />“iPod” and “broadcasting” and refers to the distribution of audio<br />content. An audio podcast is similar to a radio broadcast except<br />that listeners don’t have to tune in at a particular time. Instead, <br />users can subscribe to a podcast and automatically receive<br />a downloaded copy of each new episode. Users can listen to a <br />podcast through their computer or through an MP3 player such as<br />an iPod.<br />
  3. 3. How Does<br /> Podcasting <br />Work?<br />1. Podcaster creates a podcast: A podcaster plans, records and edits their<br />podcast. Almost all podcasts are recorded and published in MP3 format.<br />2. Podcaster publishes the podcast to the internet: The podcaster uploads<br />their episode to a website and makes it available for subscription by using RSS feed.<br />3. Subscribers get the podcast: People subscribe to the podcast. Whenever a new<br />episode of a podcast to which you are subscribed is published, it will download to your <br />computer.<br />4. Subscribers listen to the podcast: Once the episode is downloaded, subscribers<br />can listen to it whenever they want on their computers or on a digital music player, such <br />as an iPod.<br />

  7. 7. Recording and editing software
  8. 8. A way to publish your podcast</li></li></ul><li>Recording and Editing your Podcast<br />You can record your podcast either at once or in segments. <br />You can use free, open-source software such as Audacity (audacity.sourceforge.net/) <br />to record your podcast, and edit it as you see fit. <br />
  9. 9. Publishing your Podcast<br />Once you have created your podcast, you can publish it for free by uploading<br />your podcast to a website that offers free hosting for media files, like <br />www.ourmedia.org. You can also create a blog and upload your podcast there.<br />
  10. 10. How does Podcasting <br />differ from <br />Internet Radio?<br /><ul><li> Podcasting makes use of the Internet’s Real Simple Syndication (RSS) </li></ul>standard. <br /><ul><li> Unlike internet radio, podcasts are published and transmitted</li></ul>via the internet. <br /><ul><li> Also, instead of a central audio stream, podcasting can send</li></ul>audio content directly to an iPod or MP3 player.<br /><ul><li> Podcasts are also different from traditional or internet radio because</li></ul>podcasts give listeners control over when they hear the recording.<br />
  11. 11. What are the benefits of podcasts in education?<br />Podcasts :<br /><ul><li> Enable portable lectures/education

  14. 14. Allow students to use their entertainment systems (iPods, </li></ul> MP3 players) for educational experiences<br /><ul><li> Enable the development of learning communities when used in </li></ul>concert with student-generated content <br />
  15. 15. The Case for Podcasting in Education<br />Podcasts are a great way to engage students in critical thinking and higher <br />levels of analysis. The highest level of Bloom’s Taxonomy is creation. What <br />better way to tap into this level of thinking with your students than through the<br />use of podcasts? In this way, students become responsible for creating content<br />for their classmates. <br />
  16. 16. How can you use podcasts in your class?<br /><ul><li> Podcasting can provide access to experts through interviews.
  17. 17. Students can create their own podcasts as a way to collect notes or a </li></ul>reflection on what they have learned.<br /><ul><li> Instructors can record their class for students to download as a podcast. </li></ul>This allows students to listen to class material multiple times to reinforce <br /> information.<br /><ul><li> Instructors can use podcasting as a way of giving feedback to students on </li></ul>various assignments. This saves instructors time and potentially gives students <br />more feedback than they would have gotten if they received written comments.<br />
