Doug Belshaw has created a useful 3 part guide on getting started with podcasting in the classroom which includes the following steps:
- Step 1 - RSS and setting up a teacher blog
- Step 2 - Recording and editing your podcast
- Step 3 - Converting and uploading your podcast ready for the masses!
Doug suggests hosting mp3 files created with Audacity on easy peasy blogging platform Posterous which allows you to email up to 1GB of audio to your account and have each file embedded automatically with its own player. For newbies to podcasting, this offers an alternative to using a site like Podomatic and may prove more straightforward.
