Learn How to Podcast!

EDF 550: Podcasting for Educators

You’ve probably heard the term—here’s your chance to learn exactly what a podcast is, and how to gain access to a world of freely available podcast content. Then, you will complete a series of hands-on activities in which you:

  • Design and plan your own podcast series
  • Record the audio files for your podcasts
  • Publish your podcast series on the Web

Cleveland State University will offer a one-credit course on four Saturday mornings, with assigned work to be done between class meetings using Blackboard CE8 for discussions and class communications.

The course is applicable to all subjects at all levels.

  • Teachers use podcasts to stay in touch with parents
  • Teachers assign students to produce their own podcasts to enhance the learning process
  • Administrators use podcasts to stay in touch with their faculty and staff members, parents, and members of the community
  • Counselors use podcasts to keep the school community informed on issues of guidance
