Workshop 1 How to create a podcast

This the workshop component of the Drexel RSS club's 18th meeting. It is a pretty tight 18 minute recording of creating a podcast from scratch using Blogger and Feedburner. It includes:
1) Creation of a Blogger account, blog and a post.
2) An overview of most of the Blogger settings and my recommendations.
3) Creation of a Feedburner account and putting in the Blogger atom feed.
4) An overview of the Feedburner settings, including conforming to iTunes and setting up copyright preferences.
5) Creating subscription buttons for Bloglines and an XML button and how to incorporate that in the Blogger template.
6) How to create a link to an mp3 to be podcast in Blogger.

I am not sure how useful the podcast will be without the visual but the screencast should show you everything you need to know to create a podcast with free services.

RSS club meeting 18

Friday's RSS club meeting included Steve Platek from psychology, Lisa Schmidt from Addiction Research and Mike Aquino from chemistry.

This time I decided to split off the meeting into two parts. This is the first part where I bring up recent posts in my main blog and we discuss them. This involved mainly the UsefulChem project and Open Source Science in general. Steve made the point that using blogs as a vehicle to discuss scientific data takes us back to the way scientist used to communicate mainly through letters.

I also brought up the two conferences I am helping organize:
1) Philadelphia Area Educational Technology Conference
2) HigherEdBlogCon

The second part on the workshop will be posted next.
