In this session participants will learn how to make podcasts and in which context to use them. Podcasts are audio programs that are broadcasted over the Internet. They are MP3 files which can be downloaded onto a compatible digital player or played on your computer. You can download one or many, for free (generally), or you can subscribe to an RSS service for downloads so you can be alerted when new postings are made available. Podcasts can be used for: 1) production and delivery of open content learning materials for the development of capacities of grassroots NGOs and civil society organizations; 2) direct linking of different international events / discussions to participant s in the developing world through the broadcast of speeches and conversations; 3) creation of an open content network of audio; 4) creating an audio database of best practices and thematic resources.
