We are interested in re-purposing this wiki to be a Brock University wiki about multimedia, but we can't figure out a name that would work - other than MediaWiki. Feedback is welcome.

What is a podcast?

Podcasts are designed to be episodic, and are not ideal for single items.

A podcast is free audio or video content which is delivered to its subscribers automatically and can be listened to at the listener’s convenience. Many listeners choose to have this content automatically added to their iPod/iPhone/iPad, which is where the name originated, but any Mac or Windows computer with speakers is all that is really needed. Apple's music player and music store, iTunes is credited as catalyzing podcastings staggering growth and adoption achieved largely through ubiquity and ease of use that has thus for not been the norm on the internet.

Through Brock's iTunes U presence, podcasts can be distributed publicly and semi-privately to authenticated members of the Brock University. This tool provides the necessary storage and bandwidth for large scale distribution of video and audio content as well as an interface to allow instructors, staff, and maybe students to distribute content directly without having to go through any form of gate-keeping.

Brock University makes use of Apple's iTunesU service which Apple makes available to universities for free. This service has recently forked into a Private iTunes U and a Public iTunes U.
