Teaching & Learning in Flu Season

Because influenza guidelines require ill students to isolate themselves and stay out of class, faculty are encouraged to make use of technology to help students keep up with their course work.


For faculty: Making podcasts at Carleton

We now have a new, easy-to-use solution for faculty to capture audio, video and on-screen materials (e.g., PowerPoint presentations) and put them up on the web for their students.  All you need is a Mac computer and a microphone or video camera.  The computers and software are already located in many classrooms across campus, and the microphones and video cameras are readily available at PEPS in Laird 14.

Instructions for making podcasts.

If you have questions or problems, please contact any of the Academic Technologists.
