Podomatic is a great podcasting tool available on the web and also on mobile devices. You can record the podcasts directly to Podomatic, or you can upload a pre-recorded file. These podcasts can be listed on a web homepage, and you can add tags on them. It’s simple to use, and there are many possible uses for this. The teacher can use this to teach language structures, give tips on writing, etc. Students can create their own podcast “show” where they regularly speak on a topic given by the teacher. These podcasts can be shared, so maybe students can listen to each other’s podcasts and write summaries about them as a listening task.
*There is also a minicast option, where you can upload audio and photos to make a video slideshow.
