Three Podcast and a Reflection

Reflection: Recording the podcast was the easiest part of this assignment. I found it difficult to synthesize the chapters into  a couple of minutes. I think my podcast may be just a tad long. I found so many great quotes in the chapters that what I did was use the quotes to explain my thoughts and the chapters. Once I got that done I recorded the podcast using audacity. This is only the second time I have made a podcast and there is definitely more I would like to learn about making them. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to add music or other effects. I think in the future it would be a good thing to learn. I should probably incorporate podcast into my teaching. I could easily use podcast for tutorials; that was what my first podcast did. I could also see coming up with student projects. That would be good because then my students could teach me. The next problem I came across was getting the podcast into my blog. Luckily we have a great instructor and when I asked he told me to use soundcloud. At first I couldn’t get on soundcloud because I used my high school email and never got the confirmation email. So this evening I tried again using my university email and that worked so now my podcast are up and I believe I am now caught up.
