Today I had the pleasure of sitting down with a member of my staff at Penn State's Education Technology Services. I've been promoting podcasting on our campus for quite some time and people are catching on. We are putting together a University-wide podcasting solution as I type ... it addresses podium recording all the way to final distribution. It has been an interesting and fun project -- with lots of issues to navigate.
Tara is a member of the ETS Marketing Team focusing mostly on PSU Training Services (TS). Our TS group wants to start offering podcasting sessions as soon as this summer ... we've been talking about everything from how you do a podcast to how do you subscribe and so on. Tara took the time to sit down with me and learn a little about podcasting. We went through setup, recorded a podcast, edited it with GarageBand, and published it to the Podcasts at Penn State site -- all in about an hour and a half. All in all, it was fun and a nice break from all the stuff I am usually doing during the day.
Tara asked me a bunch of questions about teaching and learning with technology -- specifically blogs, wikis, podcasts, and more. Pretty standard stuff, but it was all about learning to podcast. Jump over and take listen if you are interested.
