Steps to Take


Audio Podcasting

    1. Attach your microphone

  1. When you arrive for your scheduled class meetings, clip-on and turn-on the yellow wireless microphone located in the back of the Media Station.
  2. Clip the wireless microphone to your collar about 6 inches below your chin. Try to clip it right in the center, and not to the side.

    2. Audio Podcasting Process

  1. The light on the yellow wireless microphone will be green when the battery is good and red when the battery is low. When the light is red or if the battery dies, please change the battery. There are new batteries available inside the Media Station (behind the DVD/VHS combo) and a receptacle for recycling used ones on top.
  2. If you find your volume over the classroom speakers is too low, adjust the volume level using the black volume control knob inside the Media Station or the microphone volume settings on the media control touchpad. The volume level for your podcast is preset. If you find the volume level of your podcast recordings are too low, clip the wireless microphone closer to your chin. Please do not adjust any settings on the wireless microphone itself.

    3. Retrieve Your Podcast

Your recordings should be available within 5-10 minute of the end of your lecture. You can listen to your podcasts and download them by visiting http://podcast.ucsd.edu.

Screencasting

When you are screencasting, whatever is being displayed on the room’s projector in the classroom will be recorded. This method of screencasting is ideal for PowerPoint and Keynote slides, still images from the laptop, and notes written on the document camera. Screencasting is completely automated, without a video camera or camera operator in the room
