Podcasting with Video Kit

Anyone with a microphone, video camera, a Windows computer, and an internet connection can publish audio or video podcasts to people anywhere in the world! You no longer need 3-5 different software programs to create a podcast or vodcast.

The software combines a scripting tool, sound recorder and video recorder, easy uploading, and broadcast utility into one easy interface. You can record your podcast's audio or video directly into the program or import any major audio or video file onto the timeline using the easy to use interface. Then once you have set your podcast's title and episode title, you can simply publish and promote your podcast with the ease of one click!

If you can “point-and-click”, then you have all the skills necessary to create fantastic podcasts or vodcasts! You’ll never have to write a single line of programming code, or decipher complex RSS feeds. Podcasting enhances the communication between schools, communities and businesses, while also creating a platform for sharing ideas. It’s an incredibly fun and fiercely addictive means of communication.
