The One-Minute Media Hits Education

Many tools exist for teaching SMEs and IDs who want to share their daily chunk of instruction. The simplest expression of RD is building a MP3 using Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/). Find a music loop for your intro and you are done! Last week, I built seven 40-second MP3s from capture to publishing in less than one hour--without prior experience with the software.

Classroom Recording and Podcasting Process

Here is a chart that I have recently developed. It explains (in French - sorry...) the kind of input you can capture from a classroom event and how it can be streamed for a live audience and stored on a server for playback. It also shows that you can use different methods to reassemble audio, video, screen capture or full motion screen capture into formats that are adapted to the Net Gen.
