Describing and Implementing a Podcast

I find that working on a college campus lends itself to observing new trends.  One of the most recent trends and fashion accessories on campus is the iPod. Many students around campus have iPods and other .MP3 players and listen to them on a regular basis. One of the ways that iPods are being used is to disseminate spoken words and interviews with podcasting. 

In this project for EDIT 226, I thought about this interactive technology and how implementing podcasts in college courses could add value to both instructors and students.  By using podcasting as an instructional tool, instructors will not only have a valuable educational instrument at their disposal; their students will have the opportunity to experience a new technology. In order to have access to this powerful educational instrument, these instructors should have the knowledge of how to successfully implement podcasting in their lesson plans.

In this project, I created a one-hour course to teach San Jose State University faculty to use a tool called “Audacity” to create podcasts, to create RSS feeds, and upload created podcasts to a server.
