Why Podcast ?

Million of internet users around the globe are finding a new, fun, interesting, entertaining, englightening, and informative content too attract visitor in their sites. 

Because of first impression count and people only remember about 10% of what they hear, but they remember 50 – 70% of what they hear. With an audio file, you can be sure that more of your visitors will remember the message presented in the site. Once your visitors hear your voice, they know that there is a real human being behind the website. This goes a long way towards establishing trust and credibility.

According to the Information week, the number of podcast users in the United States alone is expected to increase around 60 million by 2010. The largest number of podcast are driven by a private users which mostly use for music download. This tool definitely valuable.

My daugther assigned a poem for the holiday play, and her teacher record the poem in audio files, than encourage the parent use the childred listen the ipod while memorize the poem. Of course, my daughter exciting because this is the first time that she will be able using the ipod for school purpose. Education week reported that educator are starting to see how podcasting can help students’ vocabulary, writing, editing, public speaking, and presentation skills.  Wesley A. Fryer in his article also reported that podcast as one of technology for the classroom in the 21st century education program. He also listed the benefits of podcasting in the classroom . I had a lecture from the organization I belong to, podcast their announcement and lectures to allow its members who are traveling, members who are ill, members who live at a distance who can’t participate phisically. However in my observation, there are some educators and parents who are not agree to involving a technology as one of the classroom tools. If you ask me about my opinion for daughter education tools, I supporting any tools which is work, and avalable for her.

    How great! Don’t you wish we had these tools when we were growing up? I know I would have done better in school. I never thought about the Pod Cast to capture the attention. I definitely would like to try it.

  2. You said people remember about 10% of what they hear but about 50-70% of what they hear, I’m guessing you meant 10% of what they read? And that’s really interesting, I didn’t know that and that gives podcasting a big benefit over regular blogging. Not to mention the number of Podcast users by 2010 seems incredible. I guess we’ll see even more of this useful technology.

    I like the way that you and everyone are posting comments about “how you find common uses of Podcasting” in your home, friends, children. That’s true. We are already involved in this.
    About Jimmy’s comment, I just want to say that blog demand time to sit and read, but audio-podcasting is useful when you drive, waiting rooms, etc. Is this world, all is about “Time”

    I do think also that it does bring a sense of trust and credibility because then you may feel more like you know that person. But what if they alter their voice?

  5. It’s a great way to offer on-demand entertainment. In stead of tuning in at a certain time on radio or TV. You can get the material when you want. I like the site called newfiction.com . They offer free radio shows.
