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.
