Podcasting for Teaching and Learning
What is podcasting?
Podcasting involves making an audio file (usually in MP3 format) of content that is updated frequently (i.e. a weekly radio program) available for automatic download so users can listen to the file at their convenience. The term Podcasting comes from the popular iPod music player from Apple Computer, however the technology is not limited to using an iPod.
What is the difference between podcast and a vodcast?
Typically, a podcast is limited to audio only. A vodcast uses video and images to support the audio component.
