Creating a podcast
Yesterday after listening to a podcast I decided to see how easy creating a podcast is. I used some recorded lectures that were saved in MP3 format. I used the same service, PodOmatic that was used for the podcast I listened to.
I edited the audio files using WavePad, which I used to create all my audio lectures. Since the creation of the original files my editing skills have improved. I removed some noise and a few "ahs and aaahs." and added a signature ending.
PodOmatic makes the process very easy. I uploaded the files, created some metadata such as the title and keyword, hit publish and it was done. I do have to put some pictures or visuals up.
The first file is from a course in science reference literature called "Interview with Dr. Robert Friedman." Dr. Friedman, a biologist talked about using a library and library research in his work. To view this episode, follow this link:
The second file is lecture 7 from a course in Judaica library service. "Library resources -- American Jewish Community." To view this episode, follow this link: http://ddstuhlman.podOmatic.com/entry/2010-06-29T15_09_04-07_00
Let me know what you think. I have more lectures that I could add.
