One of my goals over the quiet of the holidays was to teach myself how to podcast and add this podcast to my PowerPoint lectures on Slide Share. Hopefully, with this experience, I can learn to record presentations for the Professional Development Seminar (Download HoustonflyervL12.29.09) and other professional lessons for you.Slide Share presentations here or look at the bottom of this post for specific links.
If you aren't familiar with Slide Share this is free Internet site where you can upload your PowerPoint presentations. I found it about two years ago. Uploading the presentation is a breeze...but the software doesn't keep your animations and fancy slide transitions, so keep your presentations in PowerPoint simple and straightforward. Anyone can do this. You can also upload Keynote if you have an Apple.
The next step, ADD A Podcast. Learning how to Podcast was pretty simple. The free software called Audacity works just fine. It has more features than I even used so far. The only issue is that it is time consuming to get the voice perfected. Practice and practice, and practice. I am starting to catch on to this recording thing and be comfortable listening to my voice.
Uploading your Podcast and synchronizing it to the images is very easy....again, it is just time consuming to get it perfect.
The problem: I always see my mistakes in either the images, or text after I upload the Podcast and sync the whole thing to the images. Aw..........shucks!!!!!
Well, I'm learning to podcast . . . and now sharing my new Slide Share presentations with you. You be the judge. Let me know what you think and how to improve the next time.
So far, I have five short presentations with audio completed and would like to hear for your feedback before venturing deeper.Pecha Kucha
