Tips and Tools for Producing Podcasts

In this session, we will explore how to record, process, upload and publish audio podcasts. The skills developed during this workshop are transferable to multiple contexts. Not only will you be able to put your school announcements online, but you can also create a classroom podcast for parents, a teacher podcast for students, or a personal project podcast. We will also look at how to create a private podcast for classroom use, a semi-private podcast within a school district, and a public feed podcast.
