Podcasting... what's it all about? Do I need an iPod? (no). Do I need expensive software? (no). Can I easily create my own content? (oh yes) Are there interesting resources I can use right away in my courses? (definitely).

Sit back as we try to cut through the hype and get to something that might be useful for you.
