Show Notes – RhinoCast 01

Mark’s creation class for November “Introduction of Podcasting”.  We began with an overview of podcasting then the students brainstormed ideas for shows. Based on this, we decided as a group to do a Harmony Podcast called, RhinoCast. Once we had segments figured out, we assigned teams to each part of the show.

Technically, we used microphones connected to a mixing board then to a M-Audio Fast Track Pro audio interface. We use Audacity  to record and edit the audio and published it to the web using WordPress.
