Podcasting 101

Start a discussion about what you see. To participate in the discussion, you have to have a wikispaces account. So log on and create an account, you don't have to create a wiki page. Once you have created an account, log in, click on the discussion tab at the tob of the page you want to comment on, and add your comment to the discussion. I've added some answers to the discussion page, of questions, that I'm not for sure I totally answered during the presentation.
