6 What is a Podcast? The Official Definition: A podcast is an episodic program delivered via the Internet using an XML protocol called RSS. Podcast episodes can be audio files, video files, documents, or any combination of the three. The publisher or broadcaster podcasts the program by posting the episodes and the XML document to a Web server. The consumer subscribes to the podcast using a client application, such as iTunes, which regularly reads the XML file and downloads new episodes. Taken from Apple iTunes website.

The Plain English Definition: A podcast most commonly refers to an audio file, but can also be a video (vodcast) or text file, that is subscribed to via a web format known as an RSS feed (Rich Site Summary). Whenever the podcaster updates or adds content, the RSS feed sends the new content to an aggregator like iTunes or other sites. RSS feedRSS feed Taken from Jason Nobles brain (2/26/09).

29 Wikis & Bulletin Boards: An Analogy A wiki is a website version of a community bulletin board. Both are places where anyone within a community is free to publicly post announcements, ads, ideas, and/or solicitations. The main difference is that wikis allow the items that are posted to be edited, reworked, and remixed.

30 Wikis & Bulletin Boards: An Analogy (cont.) Imagine that you are looking at a community bulletin board. What if you could digitally edit a misspelled want-ad, or add artwork, music or other types of files to a concert flyer to make it more useful or aesthetically pleasing? Finally, what if your bulletin board could be viewed not only by local residents, but by the whole world…? That would be a wiki.
