Dr. Alice Christie's Podcasting in Education Page

Welcome to my Podcasting Resource Page. Podcasting is the method of distributing multimedia files, such as audio programs or music videos, over the Internet using either the RSS or Atom syndication formats, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers. The term podcast like 'radio', can mean both the content and the method of delivery.
