Robert Karulas’s presentation for K-12 Online today (a series of three short screencasts) gives an overview of an excellent free resource for teachers interested in podcasting. Taking It Global For Educators lets teachers register for a free account and upload podcasts less than 2 MB in size. If you compress your podcasts by using a 32 KBits/sec bit rate, this is very doable.
Creating podcasts can be relatively simpler than the process of uploading them to a server via FTP. TIG’s interface makes uploading a podcast and getting a customized RSS feed technically equivalent to attaching a document to an email file using webmail. Great resource. Robert’s screencasts are very clear and helpful.
I shared a 3 hour workshop with teachers in Tulsa Public Schools yesterday evening on podcasting, and realized that I need to add screencasts to the online curriculum and resource materials I’m sharing on podcasting.
If anyone knows of good tutorials on using Audacity to create basic podcasts as well as screencasts of this, please let me know by commenting here. I may end up creating these myself, but if someone else has already done it there’s no need for me to duplicate their work! 🙂
