Podcasts are audio and video resources that are delivered via a webpage, which contains an RSS “feed” so that users can subscribe and receive updates without having to go back and visit the page again. It’s a good way of delivering content that’s added to regularly, like lecture audio recordings or audio-conferences.

It is assumed that you have filled out a Podcasting request, and you have been notified that your site has been set up (and know the url/address). You need to add links to your Blackboard paper yourself – this will not be done for you.
