Lecture Capture/ Podcasting at GSW

The University System of Georgia partnered with Georgia College and State University to develop the USG Podcasting Server. Here, USG faculty and staff can store podcasts for viewers to subscribe to and download. Georgia Southwestern State University’s liaison to the USG Podcasting Server is Bob Slenker, GSW’s Instructional Technology Coordinator. To request an account on this server or to log into your account, simply go here: 

Included in the server interface is a great, how-to manual on creating podcasts, podcasting channels, uploading podcasts and how to let viewers know how to access them.

In addition, Frank Lowney with Georgia College and State University published a very comprehensive paper called “The 5 Ps of Educational Podcasting” describing what podcasts are, how they are distributed and how one can create them: 

Included in this comprehensive paper are also links to particular applications and services related to creating and distributing podcasts.

So far, faculty and staff at GSW have been using programs such as Camtasia Studio and Adobe Captivate to create podcasts via “live screen capture” or have been using inexpensive Flip video cameras to simply record their lectures and easily upload the video files to the USG podcasting server.

For more information on getting started with podcasting and lecture capture at GSW, contact Bob Slenker at or call 931-2922.
