Emerging Technologies: Podcast

My Podcast!

I used Gabcast to create my first podcast.
Summary: A podcast can be aduio or video and is a series of files that are downloaded through the web. Podcasting is a form of audio broadcasting on the internet. Anyone can create a podcast! Podcasts are useful for distributing imformation to poeple. Many people use podcasts to listen to music or even watch videos.
My experience.....

This was my first experience with creating my own podcast. The process was fairly easy, but I was confused when setting up my account and channel. Once I figured out how to create everything on the actual website, creating the podcast was simple. I called a number from my cellphone and recorded my podcast from there. The directions were east to follow and it took me less than 5 minutes to create and publish my podcast! These podcasts can be very helpful for sharing informarion and connecting with other people. You can even have a conference call on gabcast! Overall, this experience was a postive one and I learned how to use a new technology!

Tips for creating your own podcast!

1. Read through information carefully when creating your account and channel.

2. Make sure to create a password that is easy to type into your cell phone when recording your podcast.

3. Be aware of how many minutes you have used when recording your podcast. With Gabcast, you are given 5 free minutes to start out with. If you go over these minutes you have to purchase new ones!
