Why Podcast?  Questions to Ponder:  Who listens to Podcasts?  What are they about?  Why do people create them?

Why Podcast?  Questions for Participants:  How many of you have made a Podcast?  Listened to a Podcast?  Know what a Podcast is?

Dark Ages Technology  Once upon a time people used these odd recording

devices known as “tapes” and “videos”  Then they advanced to “CDs” and “DVDs”  Communicating with others proved tedious and expensive  Mass produce audio  No pictures or videos

Podcasting Changed all that  Podcasts allow us to:  Record audio waves  Record videos  Record pictures with the audio

Podcasting Changed all that ď‚— Most important ď‚— We can send it out to the world almost instantly ď‚— (or as long as it takes your computer to record it and upload it)

How is this helpful?  Educational  Post lectures online that students can download to their Ipods, MP3 players, DS, or PSPs

How is this helpful? ď‚— Work Related ď‚— Post meeting notes, proposals, or discussions

How is this helpful?  Fun  Post pictures from a trip with the audio explaining them so family in California can enjoy your stories  Family videos

How do I make a Podcast  Making the Podcast is easy  You need a microphone plugged into your computer

(video is optional) and a recording device  Generic recording devices work fine but Garage Band

(Mac) is great if you have it  For today, you should have downloaded the program from

IMPORTANT  Make sure whatever program you use saves the file as

an MP3 or an MP4 (for videos)  Otherwise you will make a fabulous recording that you cannot upload 

What to say  Record a brief 10-15 second rambling of words…we

recommend the following:  “I am so smart…S-M-R-T….I mean S-M-A-R-T!!!!”

 For the sake of our discussion today, lets keep it

simple…  Lets do a photo explanation

First thing  Find a photo on your computer, one that is easily

accessible  Must be JPEG formatted  If you want you can copy it to the desktop for now to

make it easier to find
