Podcasting and Video Podcasting

One of our last Web 2.0 features that we are going to work on is Podcasting.  Podcasting can either be an audio or video file that can be downloaded in digital format for playback on your computer or other device at a later time.

We will be using “Audacity” for creating audio podcasts and windows movie maker for creating video podcasts. Both programs are installed on your computers.

Here is a link t0 the Audacity User Manual. This will give you an overview of the controls of the program, as well as tips about podcasting.

This is the link you can copy and paste – http://audacity.sourceforge.net/manual-1.2/

Your project needs to be about a talent that you have and can teach to others. Just make sure that it is school appropriate and is explained well enough that your audience can understand and be able to duplicate your actions or instructions.  A script of your podcast narration is required to be turned in! Just make sure your narration speed is not too fast.  You will need to speak slower than you think you should.
