The week 45 started with a short introduction of Podcasting. For me it was completely new that the term Podcast consists out of the two words iPod and Broadcast. In the lecture I got a good introduction about the Podcast theme. I`ve never used a Podcast before and – of course – I`ve never created a Podcast before.
I started after the introduction from Sven with watching the video How To: Record A Podcast With Audacity. This video is very easy to understand. Then I started to hear my first Podcasts. After that we decided to use our iPhones and MacBook’s for recording, producing and editing our Podcast. The music for our Podcast comes from Jamendo.com. We could see, that it is really fun to make a Podcast, but it is hard to encode the end-product in the right format to upload it. Podpean is a good homepage to upload and promote it, easy to understand and for free. The upload time for new podcasts is long when you have a bad internet connection. The statistics to see who had downloaded, or subscribed it is very helpful to evaluate the results and success of the podcast. (Podcast: http://hamksport.podbean.com)
The second theme in this week was blogging. I have read some blogs in the past. But this personal learning portfolio is my first self-created blog. I like it to post interesting things to our target group and see that they enjoy reading it. However there are quite a lot of difficulties. At first to choose which design we want. We compared a lot of webpages and after a brainstorming within our group we decided which design we want. The brainstorming is for avoiding narrow thinking. The second issue is that if you have once started blogging, then people expect a lot of updates. That means that starting a blog is not difficult, but managing a blog is hard work.
