Podcasts

What is a podcast?
"A podcast is audio or visual content that is automatically delivered over a network via free subscription. Once subscribed to, podcasts can be regularly distributed over the Internet or within your school’s network and accessed with an iPod, laptop, or desktop computer (both Macs and PCs)." - Apple Computer, "Podcasting in Education" website, 4/06

Why do we podcast?
Web design can be a complicated process often involves a series of steps for each task in a project. Podcasts offer a great method for students to watch over and over after a lesson is given or view it if they are absent from class when a lesson was taught in class. This is why lessons taught in our coruses regularly recorded live using screen recording software and then made available in podcast format shortly after they are delivered. These podcasts have been produced for reference and use specifically with the Web Design classes at New Hartford High School. These can be freely downloaded and listened to by anyone who wishes to subscribe to them.

How can you listen to our podcasts?

Subscribing Directly Using iTunes

Podcasts are best viewed and accessed using a podcast reading program such as iTunes. If you need to install iTunes on your computer, it can be downloaded here for free from Apple. Once you have downloaded and installed the program, you can click on the appropriate orange RSS button below to subscribe directly to each classes' podcast in iTunes. Using this method, as each new lesson (episode) is posted, iTunes will automatically que the new file to downloaded when once is posted.
