I have a great idea for podcasts. I have been stewing for weeks about learning how to do podcasts and teaching my kids how to do them. I've posted here and other places begging for the best instructions, videos or explanations. (You have been generous in helping--thanks)

Today a couple of my 6th grade girls had finished their research assignments and I was furiously helping others post assignments to our project website-- I turned and said to the girls -- "the computer guy downloaded Audacity, go figure out how to do podcasts---there is a new wireless mic in the blue box under the counter."

I went back to my work with other students--in less than 15 minutes I heard "We're done, Mrs. B. we've figured it out!!" I smiled at my co-teacher--and listened as the girls across the room were recording their first podcast and making plans our big project.

I would have spent hours stewing and fussing and making sure I knew every in and out before I plugged in the mic, they just went for it. What a joy!

I used to use VideoBlender (stand alone software) for claymation but used Movie Maker for the first time this week, worked well and was easy for the 5th grader to use. Now how do I post the animated movie to blog or website?
Upload the finished video to teacher tube. After it is uploaded you will get the code to embed. Then you just add the code to the site you want to put it on. What makes What it so nice about Canstudio is that is does a screen capture. So if need to capture a flash video you can as well as creating things on so many of the on-line sites.. Teacher tube as a 1 minute tutorial on how to use Camstudio.

I am going to have my kids create some animated pieces on the ocean using fluxtime animation online and then use camstudio to capture and record it. I am guessing it will work with Moovl as well.
Nancy, if you are going to put it up on teachertube, make sure it is in mpg format and that you save using a smaller file size. From memory, does moviemaker have a 'send as email option' I havent used moviemaker for a while, so someone else may respond with appropriate answers.
