What are Podcasts?
Information about Podcasts:

Podcasts are audio files that deliver content over the Internet. Many news organizations, media outlets, authors and many other organizations offer podcasts as an additional way to provide information. A podcast is different from other digital audio formats because of the ability to download audio files automatically using RSS or subscriptions. Usually the subscribtions are free and the beauty of the RSS is when a source published new content the files are directly downloaded to your computer.

There are two common ways to listen to these podcasts:

  1. Listen from a website (example, click the podcasting icon picture to play.)
  2. Use a program like iTunes to download the podcast.
    • (NPR's Education, click download and you will be prompted to open with itunes, click ok.)
