With the aid of this guideline you will be able to add a podcast to your course in no time and create your first episode.


Produce an audio or video file for your podcast episode by means of appropriate recording software (e.g. GarageBand) before saving it in a Flash-compatible format (FLV, MP3, MP4, M4V, M4A or AAC).

In case you have not created a course yet you will get further information in the chapter "Creating Courses" on how to proceed before generating a podcast by means of the following instruction.
