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.

To access this tool, select Podcasts from the Tool Menu in your site.
