A quick guide to podcasting using the iPad 2. It used to be such a long winded procedure using Windows and shareware software to produce a podcast; now it’s a breeze! I look at the differences between what I used to do with my Windows laptop and now what I do with the iPad 2. The process has become so easy, that letting students take the iPad and record their own podcasts is so simplistic and very engaging.
Garageband does it all for you – you don’t need any experience at all – the students have really enjoyed putting these together. I recommend www.podbean.com as a free podcast hosting site (www.mrmerchant.podbean.com) and from there you can also link your podcasts to the iTunes store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mrmerchant/id384332481). Students have really enjoyed seeing/hearing their work on the iTunes store – “very cool”.
Give it a go – don’t worry about fancy jingles and editing – just go for it and enjoy the experience!
