myMedia and Podcasting

myMedia is your place to store media files - specifically visually rich files such as images, audio, video, animation, 3-D drawings, HTML, PowerPoint, etc.

In addition, myMedia serves as MSU’s podcasting system with the ability to house any file type. myMedia allows users to record from a podcast-enabled lectern and publish their recording immediately. Users also have the option to use a portable recorder to upload recorded files. These files can be accessed from the myMedia site through an Internet connected computer with speakers, or placed on an mp3 recorder.

myMedia files can also be accessed within myCourses through a link to myMedia sets or individual files, allowing seamless accesses to these large files.

Podcasting

The proliferation of iPods and its popularity among college students has many universities, including MSU, utilizing "Podcasting" as a delivery medium. Podcasting is a way to receive audio files over the Internet that can be listened to on a computer or downloaded to an mp3 player, such as an iPod. The basic requirements for podcasting are a computer (PC or Mac), podcasting software (e.g. iTunes), and an Internet connection. For portability, an iPod or other MP3 player is needed.

Through myMedia, users are able to record from a podcast-enabled lectern and publish their recording immediately to a myMedia set. Users also have the option to use a portable recorder to upload recorded files. These files can be accessed from the myMedia site through an Internet connected computer with speakers, or placed on an mp3 recorder. Each instructor has the option of opening their podcast to the public or restricting it to those enrolled in their class.

The Center for Teaching and Learning has podcasts available that do not require authentication. These podcasts are available at http://mymedia.msstate.edu/outputset.php?id=2474
