Creating Podcasts from Soup to Nuts

Learning and Teaching Scotland has a comprehensive guide for educators interested in creating and using podcasts in their classrooms. The guide is a series of videos covering everything from "what is a podcast?" to creating and publishing your podcasts. You can download all of the videos for viewing on your laptop or other portable device. Embedded below you will find What is a Podcast?


Another good overview of podcasting is Common Craft's Podcasting in Plain English.
