Podcast media are not special files. Any traditional MP3 audio file or MP4 video file (two of the most common multimedia formats) can be used as a podcast. You may create your own recording, or request that Educational Media Services professionally record it for you.
If creating your own podcast, you need to record your lecture, presentation, or other content and save it to a computer. For information about equipment and software for creating your own recording, please visit our page Podcasting - Recording Recommendations.
