What is a podcast?

A podcast is an episodic series of digital audio files that can be downloaded or streamed, often in MP3 format. Unlike traditional radio or other web-based streaming media, podcasts give listeners control over when they hear the recording.

Podcasts are more popular and easier to access than ever before. This means that podcasting presents an amazing opportunity in higher education – if you use the medium correctly.

What to Consider Before Starting

Reserve On-Campus Recording Space

Augusta University offers a few campus locations to record a podcast in a private location. All students interested in reserving a space must have a faculty or staff representative. Note that these spaces are private classroom spaces and not audio studios, but audiovisual equipment is available to rent.

Who can book space?

Per enterprise policy - faculty, staff, and student organization leadership can reserve enterprise space. Some spaces can be booked by external entities at a cost. If you have questions regarding your ability to schedule space, contact the Office of Classroom and Event Scheduling at 706-721-0902. For after-hour audiovisual assistance, contact the IT help desk at 706-721-4000.
