      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
      <http://www.mguhlin.net/wiki/index.php?n=Main.Podcasting>
      Check item #6...that has lots of audio/music that is royalty free.

      Best wishes,

        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.

        Glenda and others: Podcasting is the process of delivering content via RSS feed and specialized aggregators known as podcatchers. The advantage of this mode
        Message 3 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.

          Message 4 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

              You are welcome to attend and/ or to invite others to this webinar with

              on my Taxonomy of Collaborative E-Learning, in addition to other research
              findings on organizing collaborative activities. We'll discuss examples and
              ideas generated by participants-so bring your ideas, examples and dilemmas.



              Pass the word to anyone who might be interested in joining this live (and
              lively) discussion!



              All the best,
