02/28/2007 Podcast Recording Software
Before you begin podcasting develop a plan and a format for your show. Determine the focus of your podcast and what types of guests you would like to interview. Time spent planning your show will contribute to it's success.

Location, Location, Location
When you are producing a podcast on a regular basis it is important that you select an appropriate location for the recording to take place. The location should be free of external distractions and relatively quiet. It is easiest if you use the same location each time, that way the equipment can remain in place and will not require moving or setup each time you produce a show.

02/26/2007 PC Magazine Believes the Podcast Hype
Great podcasting article by PC Magazine:

All of the hype surrounding new communication technologies like podcasting may make you wonder why you bother paying attention. But like blogging, which I wrote about in the previous issue, podcasting is a relatively easy way to increase consumer awareness and create an open dialogue between your customer and your brand, ultimately creating loyalty.

Customers can also subscribe to your podcast, so that each time you produce a new show, they will automatically receive it. Much as a webinar can do (but without needing to be live), podcasts can reach your target market with regularly scheduled relevant messages and information about an issue, your industry, and your business.

02/05/2007 Schools Podcasting Lectures
iPod's and Podcasts are no longer just a form of entertainment. Now, classrooms are taking a big jump into the world of technology.

Teachers from Florence County met Wednesday for a training session on how to implement iPod technologies in their classrooms, more specifically, Podcasts. iPods will not only bring convenience to the classrooms, but will make the classroom accessible 24 hours a day, instead of just in between the school bells. If a student is absent, or missed a class they can download their lecture without stepping one foot in the classroom.

The growing database of educational podcasts in the educational feeds directory is a clear sign of this growing trend.
