Podcasting is the delivery of digital audio or video content over the Internet or from a local device. In the context of higher education, this can mean synchronous webcasting; you and your students are online at the same time and can have discussions in real time; or you can record a presentation and email a link, post it in Blackboard, or other LMS, including a blog, so your students can watch it at their convenience.
