Podcasting Online Faculty Development Programs

I gave this online talk along with Ann Morgan as a Wimba Distinguished Lecture on 4/30/2010 sharing Northern Illinois University’s journey offering live online faculty development workshops using Wimba Classroom as well as making online workshop archives available for on-demand viewing either online, in iTunes, or on a mobile device. Emphasis was placed on NIU’s step-by-step workflow for using the MP4 archive download capabilities in Wimba Classroom 6.0 to deliver archived online faculty development programs in podcast form. The presentation included considerations for hosting archives outside Wimba Classroom as well as the steps necessary to create a podcast RSS feed, submit to the iTunes store, and update the necessary files when a new MP4 archive from Wimba Classroom is available. Slides are available for download here. Video archive, full online presentation archive in Wimba, and podcast via iTunes formats are available.
