Week7- BSBLED802 Lead learning strategy implementation 2.1 Podcasting Technology Podcasts are audio or video files that are posted as series on the web and distributed via the assistance of a Rapid Simple Syndication feed (RSS feed) (Deal, 2007; King & Gura, 2007; Lafferty & Walch, 2006, Rosell-Aguilar, 2007, Huang, 2013). RSS feed allows podcast programs to obtain the up-to-the-minute episodes of the series instantly upon their publication.
