This web site, which offers many excellent examples of assignments and podcasts, explores various uses of podcasting that effectively engage different audiences in three major sites of composition: the classroom, the writing center, and the professional composition conference. Podcasts give students a new way to receive and present information and can engage students in the material by allowing them to be active composers in an emerging technology. Assignments that require students to produce their own class podcasts not only actively engages them in synthesizing course content and exposes them to a new mode of composing but also provides a critical opportunity for them to reflect upon the needs and expectations of their audience and how to reach that audience via the rhetorical elements specific to the medium. Writing centers can use podcasts to disseminate information about writing to current and potential clients and to reach a wide audience of instructors and practitioners of writing. Finally, podcasts can expand our professional community in composition studies beyond the temporal and spatial constraints inherent in the age-old academic conference model. In each of these examples, podcasts are most effective only when they are instructionally sound and when they provide content that adequately addresses the intended audience.
The website provided a good foundation of information about the topic. The website is very text dependent. Some visualization of the topic might catch the interest of the viewer more quickly. Overall, a nice foundational site for the beginner to explore podcasting.
