What is the Podcasts tool?
The Podcast tool allows instructors to distribute audio, video and PowerPoint files to their students either manually or via a RSS feed. Students that subscribe to a site’s RSS Podcast feed have the audio, video or PowerPoint content automatically downloaded to a “podcatcher” application of their choice.
The Podcast tool is a convenient delivery mechanism for students to subscribe to a RSS feed and listen/view content on their Mobile devices.
Instructors can also edit the Podcast permissions allowing students to upload and manage podcast files.
