College Teaching Podcasting & Videoblogging

Dec 29th, 2006 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Citizen Media, Educational Podcasts, How to Podcast

Starting this semester, students at Phoenix College (AZ) will have the chance to learn how to write, produce, and star in their own video blog or podcast. A new course, Videoblogging and Podcasting: Self-Broadcasting in the Web 2.0 World, begins Jan. 22 at the college’s downtown campus, 640 N. First Ave., Phoenix.

Cheryl Colan, an adjunct faculty member at the college, said she is looking forward to teaching the class and helping students learn about the latest Internet marketing trends. Students will produce at least nine episodes of an audio or video program of their choosing. They will write the scripts, record audio or video and compress it for Web distribution. Students will use free blogging Web sites to create their own blog for host their show.

“They will then use to create an RSS feed, an automated way to distribute content over the Web, to set up a distribution channel for their program,” said Colan. “Finally, students will use some of the many social networking sites to introduce and promote their show.”
