Transcript of Interactive podcasting

Podcasting for the classroom and beyond Why make podcasts? allows mobile content delivery
learning can occur anywhere anytime
students can listen while on-the-go
interactive content delivery not just passive audio
great for special needs and international students
What do I need? a recording device like a built in mic on your PC or an iphone,
audio editing software like Audacity which is FREE
How do I make one? The world has gone mobile and people are crying out for flexible learning decide on the purpose of the podcast
is it to instruct, inform, motivate, engage?
will it be interactive or just listening?
write a script or make an outline of main points
keep it simple and to the point
record your audio and don't worry about mistakes
open your audio file in Audacity and edit errors
'normalise' the recorning for better sound quality
save as a compressed file
export the file as .WAV or .MP3
upload to UTSonline or somewhere else for easy access
allow comments and discussion about the podcasts to encourage reflective learning
students can subscribe to your podcast 'feed'
when you add new ones they automatically download to itunes
update and reuse each semester as needed Tips decent sound quality
limit background noise
record in a quiet area
save as a compressed (small) file for quicker downloads
plan what you want to say
keep it short and sweet
speak slowly
vary your voice
be aware of copyright issues
don't let it take up too much time
don't be a perfectionist
Will they stop coming to lectures? the reality is some students come to lectures and some don't
the ones who do will probably also listen to the podcasts in addition to attending
the ones who don't will probably listen to the podcasts because they feel guilty about not attending
either way they'll probably listen to the podcasts which is a win - win
Students can make them too for example, (instead of submitting a report) they could interview an 'expert'
develops communication skills
encourages reflective learning
