Podcasting sounds simple but it's actually really hard if you're trying to write the feeds manually, that's where we come in. We've made the process very simple. First you add a Podcast Series to your site:
Then you add a new Episode (or many). You can come back here later on to add more when you've finished making them:
Once you have at least one Episode you can view your Podcast Series on your site. For those who don't have iTunes (or another feed reader) Spike@School allows you to browse the Podcast Series manually:
As you can see it's all nice and user-friendly. There is one Episode in our Series. You can click on it to see more info about it, and download the file. Here's what it looks like in a feed reader that comes with the Firefox web browser:
To add the Podcast Series to iTunes you simply fill our their application form and provide the RSS Feed URL as listed on the Podcast Series homepage.
What a great way to present your students work to parents!
