Free Podcast Hosting, Podcast Social Subscribing Podcasting Site Audio and Video Podcasts Have you ever listened to audio-only content on the Internet? This act of publishing a recording on the Web has a new name, and is really blossoming now on the Internet. The phenomenon is called podcasting . It’s a perfectly fine name, but it really does not get to the core of what is required, or simply, what the phenomenon is all about. Podcasting Facts : Podcasting does not require an iPod. Podcasts are most usually audio files, but some include video or pictures. Podcasting uses a technology called RSS to subscribe to new content that podcasting authors produce—this means that to make use of the “automatic,” subscription-based feature of podcasting, you need an RSS-aware program on your computer. For those of you who have a fair number of digital devices in your home, podcasting is like indie-radio + TiVO + a pair of headphones. Podcasting really took-off in 2004. How to Listen, and Subscribe, to Podcasts So, let’s assume you have iTunes installed.

It also allows the creator to add audio or written text to the images and give access to other people to leave audio or text comments on the presentation. This is a really nice way of creating presentations that can interact and create dialogue with an online audience. Here’s a couple that I’ve created. I created these two presentations of examples of what I wanted them to do. Example 1 This one is a tour of Edunation II in Second Life. How can I use it with my students? Ask then to upload some images of things with personal significance and create a kind of online show and tell.Get students to create and tell a story using pictures. I hope you find this useful and do let me know how you use it.BestNik
