New to podcasting…I keep reading about only audio files for mp3. How hard would it be to incorporate office files (.xls, .doc, .pdf…etc.).
As training coordinator I want to start utilizing Podcasting for employees and students in our training program.
Question by: David Riggenbach
I don’t think it is technically possible to incorporate office files into a podcast, however, I have seen / heard instances where references have been made to office files. For example, I have heard podcast hosts say things like…”go to www.mydomain.com/podcast_worksheet1/ to download accompanying notes”.
I don’t suppose it would harm to provide a zip file containing the accompanying office files. This could probably be provided with the podcast as an html link or hosted on your own website as a page or section where your students could download the extra podcast notes / worksheets.
I hope this gives you food for thought.
