It’s almost like it’s 2004. There’s an exciting new thing someone portmanteau-ed as “podcasting”. Not so new, of course. I’ve been part of one with Antonio Vantaggiato that defies the meaning of frequency (it’s more or less a reason to talk to mi amigo). I’ve also started a series for my work this year as […]
Google Trends on “podcasting” Podcasting is passe? No, the use of audio is not, but as a “hot trend” …..? I’ve always had mixed feelings about podcasting- as a strung together series of technologies- publishing audio in format associated with RSS that could be automatically downloaded, and optionally moved to a portable device– that I […]
I am just scraping the surface with a first experience creating an enhanced podcast in GarageBand, but software designers take note– this is the way podcast editing should happen. Drag and drop your mp3 music into a sound track. drop or record your voide in a voice track, drop image files into the podcast track […]
There is really about 25 minutes of stage time in these sessions, and I knew I had a lot of ground to cover, so it went at supersonic speed. Actually a bit too fast. The presentation is here in parts- you’d need to be registered in the conference to hear the recorded archive, but I loaded must of the links in a wiki at http://cogdoghouse.wikispaces.com/PodcastOnTheCheap.
I did this in the continued hope that others will go there and add many more resources than I could muster up. I am fearful though, that as an open wiki, the spam ferrets will get in and piss all over the place. So I have made a backup, and if they do as I predict, I will restore form backup and lock it up. I hate spammers. I hate spammers.
This was not really the presentation, more of some resource pages I pulled up as I discussed things. Rather than slurping Powerpoint slides into Elluminate, I set up all my “slides” as URLs bookmarked in Firefox, and loaded them in a bookmark folder, which I opened all in FireFox tabs. This is my main mode now for web demos, even in person, so one is not stuck waiting for page loads. I got the browser screens as small as possible (for the content), and in Elluminate, I displayed them via applicatio sharing. Some of the main chat banter was people trying to guess what web browser I was using, because of the weird pattern of all the pending tabss:
I’ll share a few of the quickly mocked up creative commons licensed flickr images I used (and by the way, FlickrLilli rocks for finding them much better than flickr has set up- what has happened to the innovation at flickr’s site? it has plateau-ed as it has been yahoo-ed):
After a second Podcasting, Schmodcasting demo this week, I am getting sick and tired of talking about them 😉 This was for a mostly faculty crowd at Glendale Community College, who managed to all suit in the last two rows of the room. Different from Monday, today I moved more quickly through the variety of […]
I give my utmost appreciation and web shout out to Brian, Cole, and Darren for ideas harked in my call for help on podcast demos scheduled for Monday and Wednesday of this week at 2 of our colleges. What I’ve done for my organizational sanity as well as to provide some links for those in […]
I’m scheduled to do next week two demos at our colleges on the latest buzzword sweeping the educational technology landscape… podcasting. Following a cue from Brian Lamb in asking the internet for help, I’ll put out my own call (imitation == flattery). This is just an overview (I think) of what podcasting offers for educators, […]
Last Friday was the February meeting of our Ocotillo Online Learning Group — the theme for this meeting (selected back in May 2005) was digital audio and podcasting. While the meeting notes are not yet updated, I’ve done a quick turn around on the audio recorded and posted them to the meeting notes page. Yes, […]
We arrived Saturday at our cabin in Strawberry, AZ, for a 3 day weekend, to relax, and sample the freezing night time temperatures (if you have Sahara like images of Arizona, think again, we pegged in the low 20s F last night). Anyhow, on picking up the local paper, I noticed that last night the […]
The kiwis have a great expression about being able to fix anything with some number 8 bailing wire, sort of the down under flavor of duct tape. I just spent about 90 minutes cobbling together what I hope to be a framework for supporting audio content across a number of our content sites. I’ve yet […]
