Educators and Podcasting Simplicity

It looks like more people in the Philippines will try podcasting. I hope we don't hear too many ransom note podcasts.

PCIJ will offer podcasts before the end of 2005. Podworx has put their second episode online (interview of Janette Toral), and Pocholo Gonzales is promoting Univoicesal, the first company in the Philippines that helps develop and market voice over talents.

We can expect the number of Pinoy podcasters to double by June 2006. As I've mentioned earlier, I hope we don't hear too many ransom note podcasts.

Do you remember when electronic publishing first started? We were so happy to play with a lot of fonts and images, that our printed documents looked like ransom notes.

The same thing can happen with podcasts: too many music loops, sound effects, or even voice effects. I should know. I've actually made a number of overly-produced podcasts.

I hope those trying to put audio online will not be too intimidated by the DJ-sounding folks and the slick podcast productions. Just get out there and try to sound the way you usually sound. Some of the more popular podcasts just have an intro and outro. The actual voice portion does not contain any background music.

Don't worry too much if you think your voice is too high. Sometimes, your unique voice will brand you. Afterall, who wants to sound just like everyone else, right?

(To Educators: Your students will most likely expect you to have a blog and a podcast soon. Even if they miss your class, they'll be able to catch up thanks to your online presence. If you feel technically challenged, I'll be more than happy to help you out. If you're interested, please let me know via the form below. Thanks!)
