Podcasting from Newark Classrooms

The Office of Academic Technology has installed equipment in Ackerson 123 and CLJ 392 to record lectures which can then be made available to your students as a podcast.  We are presently researching portable recorders and expect to have at least one available for the next semester.  If you are interested in trying out podcasting or if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact Joy McDonald by email at joymcdno more spam! or by phone at 973-353-5953.

Sakai Podcasting Tool

Sakai <> has a podcasting tool that can be added to any course or project site. The tool allows you to upload audio or video files, it will generate the "podcast feed" (RSS link) that students or others can use in iTunes or other software to automatically download the files. To add the podcasting tool to your Sakai site, click "Site Info" then "Edit Tools" (you must add both the Podcasting and Resources tools).

Departmental Solutions

Some units within the university have invested in systems such as "Panopto Lecture Capture". Contact the technical support staff within your own unit to see if these are available to you.

Software for Download or Purchase
