Description
Upload your audio files directly to each blog post i.e. one-click publishing of podcasts. There is currently no limitation on the number of files you can upload! The only limitations are that each file uploaded to a blog post must be mp3 format and must be less than 4MB. A good rule of thumb with mp3 files is that each MB is approximately equivalent to one minute of audio. This is the easiest, free, web-based method of publishing podcasts. If I was just starting out, I would start here. For more information contact Luke Walker (Email: luke@takingitglobal.org)

  1. Hi Robert,

    Glad to see you presenting again. :-)

    What made you choose TIG over other one-click publishing solutions?

  2. What other one-click podcast publishing solutions? Dot Mac is the only other one I’m aware of, and it’s not free.

  3. For example – using PodPress plugin in WordPress (although requires file upload), Odeo, Podomatic, and Vaestro where you can record audio online – http://www.podomatic.com/ (free), http://studio.odeo.com/create/home (free) or http://www.vaestro.com/ (free) and then publish.

    Others like:
    http://www.hipcast.com/ (cost $$)
    etc.

    I’m sure there are other people who will have better suggestions than me on this topic though.

  4. Quentin, you’re knowledge of Read/Write web tools is most impressive! I’ll definitely check out these other options, as TIG will eventually make the move to fee based service.

    I guess I was drawn to TIG because of it’s other features/opportunities (see Luke Walker’s presentation: A Beginners Guide to Social Networking in the Classroom”).

    Setting up a TIG classroom is currently free, so TIG is essentially providing a one stop blogging/podcasting solution for students. Another TIG feature that I really like is the fact that students do not require email accounts in order to blog i.e. passwords are teacher-managed.

    I hope the other people, with the better free podcast publishing suggestions post additional comments.

    This conference has already been a great learning experience!

    How about posting on archive.org? We’ve been doing that and I don’t think they have a limit.

  6. Since I started podcasting with students in the fall of 05, Archive.org is what I’ve been using. I really should have elaborated more in the description section of this presentation (thanks for making me realize this Quentin!).

    A little background info:
    Last year, I was on the lookout for blogging and wiki tools that would provide my students with individual blogs/wiki accounts that were teacher moderated and password managed.

    I’ve also been looking for a free one-click podcast publishing solution (which Archice.org is not).

    I settled on TIG and wikispaces for the reasons mentioned above. Then, when I found out how easy it is to publish a podcast with TIG, I felt compelled to share this discovery with others. From my perspective, it had everything I was looking for. It was a one-stop solution, and I have yet to discover any other service that provides this combination of features. That doesn’t mean it’s not out there, and that’s what this conversation is all about!

    For hosting, you can check out http://www.k12learn.com For Podcasts in education, they area customize solutions for schools looking to focus on using podcasts in the classroom.

    Thanks very much for the jump start. I’ve been playing with the idea of reversing the ‘lecture’ part of a science course and assigning listening to lectures with the book for homework and spending more time in the lab, but I was kind of afraid of creating podcasts being hard.
