NECC ’09: Realtime Podcasting

This looked like it was going to be a great session. But it was definitely geared toward those who teach with PCs rather than Macs, people who’d never podcasted before.  I’m a Mac user with an existing podcast, so I gave up my seat to someone else.

A couple of quick ideas that I left with, though:

  1. Have a clear idea who your audience is or will be. The audience may grow, but have an initial audience in mind.
  2. Use a script.
  3. Keep a record of what you’ve covered in each episode, and have an overall plan for your episodes.  Know when the series will stop, when it will be over.
  4. Include multiple voices.  One single voice of authority doesn’t always work.
  5. Keep track of the jingles, sound effects, images, and links you’ve included. Try to to repeat anything too frequently.
  6. Plan, Produce, Publish, Promote
  7. Involve kids as voice actors, script writers, researchers for a series.
