Podcasts and Vodcasts
  • Digital audio and video files distributed over
    the Internet
  • Download and use the content on a computer or a
    mobile device such as an iPod or an MP3 player
  • Available through direct download from websites
    or through a subscription feed
  • Podcasting software iTunes, Juice, iPodder
    needed to subscribe
  • Once downloaded, the podcasts and vodcasts are
    not limited to online use

5
Podcasts and Vodcasts
  • Pod- and vodcasting are based on RSS, the
    software that makes subscription possible
  • RSS is server-side, not local software
  • NSU uses Drupal open source software
  • Digital audio can be converted to an MP3 file, a
    format recognized by RSS
  • Digital video can be converted to a variety of
    formats that RSS can deliver
  • The RSS file includes text that describes your
    MP3 or video file for the potential user

Sources of Content
  • AESP specializes in professional development
    workshops in the areas of science, mathematics,
    geography, and technology education. They are
    provided at no cost.

9
Sources of Content
  • Workshops introduce participants to hands-on
    activities and NASA curriculum support materials
    including educator guides, videos, and technology
    products. Aerospace Education Specialists
    customize all workshops to meet each state's
    standards.

    Materials
  • The NASA Office of Education works
    collaboratively with NASA's mission directorates
    to promote education as an integral component of
    every major NASA research and development
    mission. These efforts result in innovative and
    informative educational materials that engage
    student interest in science, technology,
    engineering, and mathematics.

15
Sources of Content
