You can create a podcast episode by adding a special kind of content type within a course or organization Content Area, such as Assignments or Course Documents.
Once you have accessed the Add Podcast Episode page, you need to complete some information to configure it.
Next, specify the media file that should be used to create the podcast. Any audio or video file can be used to create the podcast.
There are two options for adding the media file:
Note: If you are using Podcast LX in conjunction with iTunesU, the External URL option should be used. Simply enter the URL of the mp3 file on the iTunesU server in the External URL field to create and distribute the podcast in your course or organization.
Podcast LX allows instructors to attach files, such as transcripts of the podcast audio content or presentations, to their podcast episodes. When course members listen and/or view the podcast, they can access the attachments via their podcatcher or within the Podcast tool in the course.
Browse for and attach any files that should accompany your podcast. You can specify a useful link name that indicates what the file is. If no link name is specified, the file name (e.g., Lecture1preso.ppt) will be presented as the link with the episode.
Specify the availability of the podcast episode. You can also restrict availability by date and time. Use the date ranges to specify the time range within which students access the episode.
Once you have made your selections, click the Submit button to create the episode.
