- If you don't require privacy or security settings for your podcast, iTunes is probably your best bet. iTunes is the home of a lot of podcasts, and enables you to reach a wide audience. Students don't need an account to download them. To get on iTunes U, speak to your Instructional Support Unit.
- If you do require security or privacy settings, consider using Kaltura, a UBC-hosted service. Kaltura offers options for learning activities that require students to record, upload and share content through Connect. Compared to YouTube, Kaltura offers more granular control over content and contributors. Here are two pages, detailing how to upload your video to Kaltura and how to share videos.
- Post additional material: if you have worksheets, transcripts, or other material a listener might want, post them somewhere your audience can access.
- After you've finished your project let us know! Get in touch with the CTLT to have your media added to the list of examples, and to join the DIY community!
Publishing your content
When you've finished recording, editing and exporting your content to an acceptable file format, you'll need to publish it so that you can embed it where you like. You can publish your content on:
- Your own website.
- UBC's Kaltura platform
- UBC's YouTube Channel: using the upload form
- Your own YouTube Channel: YouTube Help
- Soundcloud for audio files.
- another free content hosting service.
Embedding your content
Once your content is hosted (on YouTube or Kaltura) you can embed it in a Canvas course, WordPress environment or on a wiki page. See how-tos below.
