I was scrolling through my RSS feeds and I found one of the most helpful reviews I have seen in a long time.Â Cole Camplese describes his experience with ProfCast, a program that records your lectures into a format for podcasting.
You might think that any old microphone hooked up to your computer could do that, but with ProfCast, you can sync your slides from Keynote (please don’t tell me that you use PowerPoint) to the audio from your lecture real time.Â Therefore, those who download your podcast can follow your presentation both audibly and visually.
I went to the ProfCast website and from what they say, it’s pretty easy to use.Â I went ahead and bought it, it’s only $35, and I will test it myself and report here how it works.Â Furthermore, I will make a new page and will upload the podcasts so that you can see the final product.
In short, this seems like an incredibly useful too.Â But, it only works with a Mac.Â Sorry all you PC users, but this is reason 1,346,782 to make the switch.
(By the way, if you are interested in podcasting your lectures for your class or others to see but don’t have a website, my friend David Esrati at blogosopher is the guy who can set you up and put you at the top of Google.)
