Make podcast for use in teaching
This wiki was prepared as a contribution to “Guidelines for online teaching”
You can easily create audio file or podcast yourself!
Norsk versjon av denne wiki: Lage podcast til bruk i undervisning
You can use audio files to disseminate professional information to your students. These files are smaller and often easier to produce. If you do not need to communicate visually, we recommend that you use an audio format instead of a video (or even add audio to a slide presentation).
Creating a podcast from home (recommended) #
You can easily create an audio file on your computer, smartphone or tablet and distribute it as a podcast.
On a computer:
The operating system you are using probably has a built-in audio recording feature.
- On macOS (Macbook, iMac, etc.) you can use QuickTime.
- On Windows 10, you can use the "Voice Recording" application.
On tablets and smartphones:
Your smartphone can easily be used for voice recording.
- Here are some tips from the University of Southeastern Norway.
- If you want to take an online course, we recommend The Power of Podcasting for Storytelling.
If you are using your own computer, consider purchasing a good microphone or consult with colleagues to borrow a microphone to use with your own computer for audio recording. Remember in these times the importance of hygiene and good infection control.

Studio & recording #
At NTNU in Trondheim, a dedicated podcast studio has been set up for those who want to use podcasts (audio files) in teaching. This is a low-threshold studio at the Kalvskinnet room G254. Here you will be met by advisors who will support you in creating a podcast. You can also record video of your lecture in this studio if needed. You can book these resources via an email to email@example.com
In the studio, audio recording equipment is set up with a good microphone in a separate soundbox. You save the recording with your own user account and then upload it to Blackboard. In the studio, you can also make video recordings with teleprompters and good sound quality. Please note that thorough infection control measures are being undertaken to ensure the safety of the rooms and equipment. You will be notified of the measures you must take yourself before and after you have used the resources in the room. Contact for studio #
