What is a Podcast?

According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, a podcast is "a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the Internet for downloading to a personal audio player," but the generally accepted definition has expanded to include video as well as audio. Originally derived from a combination of "broadcasting" and "iPod" the word was declared "word of the year" when it was added to the dictionary at the end of 2005.

The ILEA is now providing these "podcasts" as part of our on-going e-learning initiative.  They are free to download and will play on any computer equipped with audio software such as: Windows Media Player, iTunes, Win-amp, etc..  (Most of these programs are free downloads readily available on the web.)  The shows are in the mp3 format and should play on most portable devices, so you can take them with you and listen on the go.
