Weekly podcasts will continue as we've done the past semester with a few changes (in bold):
Update the Excel file in your respective classes in Teams to reflect where your podcast episodes (audio or video files) will reside.
Each week, you have from Wednesday to Sunday (midnight) to complete your podcast episode assignment in Canvas.
To receive credit for completing the assignment, you must submit the URL to the podcast episode in Canvas (as explained in class).
To receive full credit, you must submit URL to Canvas Sunday (by midnight). I suggest not to wait until Sunday night to complete your weekly podcast, which is why you have from Wednesday to Sunday to complete this task.
After Tuesday following the due date for each week (Sunday), late submissions will not be accepted. Late submissions on Monday will receive a 10% grade reduction, and late submissions on Tuesday will receive a 20% grade reduction.
Weekly Podcast Instructions
Speak a minimum of 8-10 minutes per weekly podcast episode and no longer than 60 minutes.
No interviews and each podcast should be done individually.
Choose any topic that you wish to discuss the entire semester. It must be a topic you will not get tired of discussing each week over the 16-week semester.
Include a hook, introduction (podcast name, tagline (slogan), your name, date, and key points of the episode), body (choose two-four key points), and conclusion (thank the audience, closing statement and/or what to expect in future episodes). Find an example of a podcast that serves as a model in how you present your intro and outro.
Submit URL to podcast episode.
Each of your episodes should draw on information (content) taken from other podcasts. The information taken from these sources should be included in your episode: 1) description of what was said, 2) your interpretation or feelings about the information (or how it relates to the key point of your episode), and 3) reference where you got the information (who said it).
Avoid reading any text during your podcast episode.
Using background music is optional. If you do use background music make sure to choose only music which is under the public domain (attribution not required) or a creative commons license (attribution required).
