Podcasts, audio or video, offer teachers and students a way to present information using multimedia. Learn how to create these digital stories to add to your Moodle course, your website, blog, or your wiki. Students can create podcasts as projects about concepts or as a way to showcase knowledge and understanding. Create podcasts with a variety of online software as well as using Windows MovieMaker or iMovie.
Note: Since iMovie will be a future educational technology professional development session, this session will concentrate on using Windows MovieMaker to create podcasts.
