Podcasting for E-Learning: Critically Analyzing Podcasts

The E-Learning Curve

My previous blog posts on podcasting have focused the human side of podcasting: narration, story-telling, communicating with your audience. Now, it's time to spend a little time understanding the technical aspects of podcasting. As you begin to hone your podcasting skills, you'll find that you're also taking a remarkable learning journey. The very act of learning an instrument teaches you to become an active listener and a critical analyst of sound.

Podcasting for E-Learning – Tour of Audacity’s User Interface

The E-Learning Curve

Here, I have indicated the point where the intro music begins, and the point where the first voice-over should start. There are two types of audio file in Figure 3: a stereo file which is typically used for music, and a mono file, which we use for narration. There is little point recording voice-overs in stereo – you only have one voice (or audio source), after all. If you record a voice-over in stereo, you only double the file size, for no gain in quality.

Podcasting for E-Learning – Storytelling and Teaching

The E-Learning Curve

Sound – especially the human voice - has been a fundamental part of the transmission of information and knowledge since pre-history. In Western culture, for example, the oral tradition – story telling – was the primary means of passing on the learned, shared values of culture, encoded in legends, myths, and fables until the invention of writing.
