Podcasting and Blogging for Legal Education

Audience: Anyone
Technical Level: Low to Medium

So your faculty are interested in podcasting. You can hand them a personal digial recorder and point them to CALI’s FAQs or create a local infrastructure of support. Elmer single-handedly recorded over 200 hours of AALS sessions (close to 120 sessions) and wrote Classcaster, the software that drives the Legal Education Podcasting Project in which over 30 faculty created 1000+ course podcasts. The last part of this session will be a discussion of how to make your school podcast-friendly and even integrate your podcasts with Apple iTunes.
