I'm pretty sure that so many of you have used audio and video files with students in the classroom.Do you think this is podcasting? technically,I would say no.Podcating refers to the way audio and video content are  distributed on the Internet.For an audio or video file to be called a podcast,two things should be taken into consideration.First,your files ought to be online,which means having an addressable server.Second,you should set a subscription feed, RSS( read simple syndication) so that the new available content becomes easily accessed and downloaded.
 Podcating is increasingly becoming popular in education thanks to its endless pedagogical possibilities.Here are some benefits of a classroom podcast
  • Get students engaged and start sharing with a vast audience
  • a means to interact with students and their parents beyond the classroom
  • enhance students'creativity and allow them to learn outside the box
  • Students benefit from testing reviews created by their teachers
  • Students listen to classroom content many times
  • If a student is absent on a given,they can download the classroom podcast so as not to miss a classroom instruction
