16th Symposium on Education


Using Podcasts to Distribute Real Time Multimedia Meteorological Products

Brendon Hoch, Plymouth State Univ., Plymouth, NH; and L. AvilÚs

Podcasting has emerged as a popular method of distributing audio and video programs for download to mobile media devices and personal computers. Students at Plymouth State University produced regularly scheduled broadcasts describing current and future meteorological conditions for central New Hampshire as the primary component of a course designed to improve forecasting and communication skills while formally meeting forecast deadlines. Open source software tools used to produce the products as well as implementation techniques will be described.
