Three reasons to reconsider using a podcast

* I prefer the term "streaming media" because it is more descriptive than "podcasting."  Podcasting is a term created by Apple to push its particular brand, hardware and the itunes store.  However, due to Apple's success in establishing the word, I use it here.  I intend to work toward constant use of "streaming media" in here, in my teaching and writing. I encourage you to do the same.

+ Notice that each podcast has an accompanying transcript for the hearing impaired.  Inclusion of a transcript is very important to meet accessibility needs of all students or users.  I suggest you write a script for your podcast (it goes a long way toward keeping the message focused and eliminating vocalized pauses), then post the script along with the audio file.

If you wish to comment on any podcast, send me an email.  In the subject line or the body of your message, please
reference the number of the particular podcast(s) on which you are commenting.  Contact Dr. Mark Stoner
