Has students that miss classes and then want to know what they missed
One of his students was already recording lectures
Other students wanted his materials
Decided to start recording himself
Some students need to go over materials multiple times in order to “get it”
Podcasting allowed students to do this on their own time
Students didn’t ask to have things repeated as much
This is where he saved time
Records everything whether it is good or bad
Doesn’t worry about it being perfect
Posts his podcasts on school web server
Uses a Sony voice recorder that saves as MP3 file
Sometimes uses Audacity (open source application)
Uses CamStudio to create video
Exports as .AVI or .SWF
Creates huge files
Converts to .SWF to reduce significantly
Shrink screen down to 800×600 for recording
Uses MP3 Tag software to add the ID3 tags to files
Uses DirCaster to feed directories
PHP based
Need to edit a settings file
