Finally: HOW TO make Enhanced Podcasts (images, links and more with audio)
Long time since my most recent post: But now I've found something interesting to post about: the 'enhanced podcast'.
Through Stephen Downes' edu_rss I found this manual by Phillip Torrone for making enhanced podcasts: MAKE: Blog: HOW TO make Enhanced Podcasts (images, links and more with audio)
Especially the option to add chapter tracks to the audio (or video) stream makes the enhanced podcast a potential instrument for e- or m-learning. Now you no longer have to sit through 45 or 60 minute audio files to find out whether there is something that might interest you in it. You can just skim through chapters and get a quick overview of what the audio file has in store for you.
This may well be the essential breakthrough that the Podcast needed to become a tool for learning.
