Adding a podcast

Note: Podcasts that you post on your site are stored in Resources. A Podcasts folder is automatically created in Resources when you add the Podcasts tool to your site.

The quota for a course, project, or portfolio site is 4 GB; the quota for My Workspace is 1 GB. You can upload files up to 500 MB in the Podcasts tool. Note that the maximum file size is 200 MB in other tools (e.g., Resources); to upload a larger file, you must use the Podcasts tool (for files up to 500 MB) or WebDAV. To request a larger quota for your site, see Default storage space allotments for UITS accounts To check your site quota and usage, in the Resources tool, click Check Quota.

The Podcasts tool allows you to upload a podcast for sharing with your site participants. To add a podcast:

  1. From your site's menubar, click Podcasts. (If you don't see Podcasts in your menubar, you may have to add it; see ARCHIVED: Adding, removing, hiding, or reordering tools.)

  5. Next to "Title", enter a title for your file in the text box.
  6. Under "Description", you may enter a brief description of the file.
  7. When you're finished, click Add.

Your file will appear on the "Podcasts" screen, under the heading for the date you published it.
