Project Podcast

This is the home page for project podcast. The purpose of this page is to start a collaborative effort and create podcasts for expanding our current World and American history cirriculum. This site won't be posted directly to the wikispace, yet. This project is going to be a pilot project. Listed below are World History and American History learning opporunities that we are looking for people to create podcasts. The list is short but please feel free to add to this list at anytime. If you don't know how to create a podcast and would like to learn click here to see some tutorials using Audacity(PC) to start your first podcast. When you get to the site click on the Jason Heiser's Course under coaches courses and at the login screen click on the login in as guest. Keep the podcasts to a 3-4 minute giving only general information. Remember the purpose is to get our students to explore and find the answer themselves.
