Podcasting in real time

This post was last updated on May 16th, 2006 at 09:49 am

Today I had the pleasure of co-presenting with the 3 other members of the edtech posse at Campus Saskatchewan’s TLT 2006 conference. Although we’ve been podcasting for a year, this is the first time we’ve been together in the same room.  The presentation as you can read, was an attempt to demystify the process and actually create a podcast during our one hour presentation.

It certainly wasn’t a perfect presentation as I forgot a projector, (I retrieved if from my van by running across campus and back without having a heart attack)  and we strayed several times from our agenda to address relevant issues and questions.  I guess that’s important although there’s something comforting about following a linear presentation and knowing you delivered what you promised. Rick commented that it was interesting to see us handle questions as we intuitively knew who would address various issues.

We shared our favourites, talked about copyrightleft, classroom applications, global publishing and more. It’s always difficult to do more in one hour than simply enlighten and perhaps begin conversations and ideas that will later flourish. Time will tell.
