If you're like me and like to add a little musical action to your recordings, I'd suggest clicking over to splicemusic.com to create your own sampled MP3 files. I'll post one as soon as it's ready...but not before it's time.

Just a side note to all you interns so you don't struggle with this like I did. Make sure that your input format is set to Full HTML rather than Filtered HTML if you're trying to embed a Flash player in your posting. It works much, much better that way!

SpaceCast7 by Lee Ann Baber

Webcast Academy - Wed, 2006-10-25 23:35

SpaceCast Episode #7 is edited and ready to go. This is one of the better live events for our middle school elgg students (personallearningspace.com) this school year. Paul Allison and I joined Madeline Brownstone for a nice student cast session. The students are starting to get more comfortable with webcasting and seem to be more themselves. We will be discussing ways to help the comfort zone grow for the students and how to guide but not interfere with their "space" and dynamics during the Teachers Teaching Teachers Wednesday. We will skip this week's webcast but will be back on November 3rd at 10:30 am EST. (Click here to subscribe to SpaceCast) I will add one thing about this recording. I had originally set it up for my iTunes Podcast and it was an m4a. Since that is a really large file, I sent it to audacity, then iTunes, then converted it to mp3 again. Well, when editing I had cut some pieces out and left the holes of silence. I forgot to join them before my series of exports since I was teaching and doing this at the same time. As a result you will hear some very obvious audio editing flaws. I am not sure I will fix it right away with more work to do before going back so excuse the quality! Oh my, just another day in the audio editing merry-go-round!

How I could use webcasting

Webcast Academy - Tue, 2006-10-24 13:36

I have been giving some thought to how I could make use of webcasting skills. The first option which springs immediately to mind is in our Absolutely Intercultural podcasts. I wouldn't want every episode to be a webcast but I can see a place for occasional webcasting on that format.

I have just been asked to lead a project about experiential learning in which I have to deliver inspiring teacher training courses in that area so that struck me as one of the sub-projects my participants could do.

I am also project leader for a European project developing mentor training materials and I had already decided that we would have some online training sessions prior to our next meeting in March and so it is possible that these sessions could be in the form of a webcast.

Audacity behaving strangely

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-10-23 14:51

In preparing my short recording for my intro I mixed down what had been a stereo recording but everytime I opened the file after saving it, it was back to stereo. Strange, I do this all the time but this time it just didn't seem to want to allow me to edit it down to mono. I'll be interested to see what I sent out, mono or stereo?

Experiment with recording both ends of a Skype call? Is it cheating to use Pamela? This is a sKYPE ADD-ON which I use. I paid about 15 $ for it and it seems to work well enough once you have got the trick of dampening down the sound of the caller so that the person you're calling can be heard properly.

My first recording

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-10-23 14:42

Here is my intro recording, unedited. My challenge is going to be sounding coherent live so I challenged myself to see if I could record something which could go out as is.

A long time ago I used to do something which I think is peculiarly British and that is hospital radio (people joked that people felt worse rather than better after listening to hospital radio) so I have a little experience of live performance (apart from teaching of course!). I also did a couple of radio interviews, again a very long time ago bit the interesting thing was that the live interview went far better than the interview which I knew was being recorded where I ended up straying off the subject rather badly.

Glitch in Audio Posting

Webcast Academy - Mon, 2006-10-23 14:05
Hello All,

    Very much enjoying the audio introductions. Just want to let you konw that I'm aware of the glitch that is leading to double posting of most introductions. Looking in to it know - should have it sorted out soon. In the meantime, please do take a look at the ID3 Tags screencast - noticing a lot of untagged audio.
