About the Presentation
Podcasting has emerged as an important aspect of the Web 2.0 world, and several usability professionals have shared a tremendous wealth of information through this new medium. Taking examples from some of Jared Spool’s podcasts (SpoolCast and Usability Tools Podcast), we’ll examine how the do’s and don’ts in the primarily visual domain of usability translate in the auditory podcasting arena. We’ll also examine what makes an audio file qualify as a podcast, as well as how to subscribe to valuable content for little effort and no cost.
