      Apologies if this issue has been dealt with before. Hopefully someone
      might be able to advise me on the following:

      I have been recording podcasts with my students over the past week in
      our computer lab. We have been using www.podcast.com as the tool as it
      seemed quite easy to use and they provide a blog-type page where your
      podcasts are then published. However, several times today we have
      recorded podcasts using the tool which comes with that site and when
      we tried to upload the messages, we have received error messages and
      the podcasts were lost.

      My questions are the following:

      Have any of you used free reliable podcasting software which allows
      you to record messages and publish them on a specically designated
      blog site? If so, which ones would you recommend?

      Have any of you had problems similar to mine with podcasting?

      Any responses welcome,
      Robert

      Hi Robert ... You might have a look at podomatic.com. It has a free blog facility, and gigabytes of free storage space. I use it and like it, but I haven t

        I use it and like it, but I haven't used it in the way you have with
        your students. We've always recorded and edited our podcast with
        computer-based software, then uploaded the audio file.

        I have had some success also with Audacity (free audio editing
        software).

        Good luck!

          Being a Mac user and students using iMacs, the iLife suite is
          perfect. Garageband for Podcasting - send to iWeb (as a BLOG). In
          class my students send to iTunes. My Graduate Study student is
          researching use of these student-generated Podcasts on iPods. Also,
          other students can add Comments to BLOGS/ PODCASTS on Website too.
          For me it means less time wrestling with the technology and more time
          supporting students' learning of content, communication, design, etc.
