Podcast information

Yesterday Chad Fennell and Peter Weinhold of the Health Sciences Library gave a great presentation concerning podcasting for the DMC's Educational Technologists Forum. Their presentation covered podcasting basics and various tools and links you could use to both create and subscribe to podcasts yourself. If you missed the presentation you can download it here:

A Podcasting Framework

In addition, I am happy to announce that UThink has expanded the maximum upload file size for uploads to your blogs. In the past, we have limited the file size per upload to 5 MB. In order to make podcasting and vlogging easier for you we have now increased the maximum file upload size to 15 MB. Depending on audio quality, compression, and other factors, you should be able to put up some lengthy podcasts now through UThink.

Again, all new blogs on UThink are automatically set up to handle podcasts and RSS 2.0 enclosures. All you need to do is upload your MP3 file and link to it from a blog entry. UThink/Movable Type will handle the rest. If you have a blog older than 3 months, please see these instructions if you plan on including podcasts on your blog.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments!
