Freebee Friday: (Pod)Casting a Wide Net
Podcasts can help students summarize material to share with classmates and bring a school together with periodic reports on the goings on at school. Everybody has their favorites as to which software to use, but my favorite is SmartFTP because it is not only free for personal and school use, but it does everything it needs to do. While it doesn’t have a sound editor, Windows’ Sound Recorder works well. There are 32- and 64-bit versions of SmartFTP 4.0, and the program not only will upload your finished podcast but it verifies that the audio file has been transferred properly. In other words, it gets the word out.
