      Howdy,
      Since I posed the original question, I've had a few responses. Many
      thanks! I've gathered these responses in a wiki for myself, and to
      share. What's been fun is finding free royalty-free audio clips for use
      among Windows/Linux folks...obviously Mac folks have Garageband.

      Anyways, I've put the resources here:
      http://www.mguhlin.net/wiki/index.php?n=Main.Podcasting
      Check item #6...that has lots of audio/music that is royalty free.

          Great collection, Miguel, thanks: I've bookmarked it on del.icio.us.

          Just one doubt about having the Internet Archive under "4.1  Audio
          Only". You can also upload videos (and of course text) to the Internet
          Archive. Actually, if you upload videos to blip.tv, you have the
          option to automatically upload them to the Internet Archive as well.

          BTW, uploading things to the Archive is via FTP, unless you use
          Explorer. And the firefox extension Fire FTP
          http://fireftp.mozdev.org/ is a multiplatform FTP client that works
          great.

          Message 4 of 11 , Mar 17, 2007
            Glenda and others:

            Podcasting is the process of delivering content via RSS feed and
            specialized aggregators known as "podcatchers." The advantage of this
            mode of delivery is that it can be done on a schedule during a low-load
            period of computer usage.


            Typically, this content is audio, but it can be anything -- text, video,
            even powerpoints.

            Audio programming can be offloaded onto mp3 players, providing the
            opportunity to provide content away from the computer.

            There are a lot of sources for content, and finding appropriate content
            is always a challenge. See podcastpickle.com and podcastalley.com for
            nicely indexed content sources.

            Check out http://podiobooks.com for serialized fiction [disclaimer: i
            have a title there and some interest in promoting that site] but there
            are a lot of other choices. I think Podiobooks is an interesting site
            because it takes the idea of serialized fiction and updates it to modern
            delivery.

            Hope this is useful.

            Howdy everyone! This is Eric Curts, the tech specialist at North Canton City Schools, in North Canton, Ohio. Over the past few months I have seen some posts
            Message 5 of 11 , Mar 18, 2007
              Howdy everyone!

              This is Eric Curts, the tech specialist at North Canton City Schools, in
              North Canton, Ohio. Over the past few months I have seen some posts about
              podcasting tools and using blogs in schools, and I finally decided to come
              out of lurkdom and pass along some info that may be helpful...

              Over the past seven years I have developed a free web design program for
              schools. Right now the program is used by about 45 districts across Ohio.
              The program is called POW-PAK (Personal Online Web Page Authoring Kit).

              If you are not familiar with the program, here are the basics:
              - The program is free, no strings attached.
              - Schools load it on their own web server, so they have total control over
              it.
              - It is designed to be very easy for non-techie teachers to use, but still
              powerful.
              - Teachers can use it to make full-featured web sites with blogs, podcasts
              (with automatically-generated iTunes-compatible feeds), calendars,
              WebQuests, lesson plans, link pages, file pages, word searches, custom
              pages, and much more.

              Well, the latest version of POW-PAK was just released with lots of new
              features. You can get all the details at the website I made for the program
              at:

              http://www.pow-pak.com

              So, if you have been looking for a free web design tool for your staff (or
              even one to supplement what you already use) take a moment to check out the
              site. Also, feel free to pass along this info to others who may benefit
              from the program. Let me know if you have any questions.

              Take care,

              Eric
