Using the IU Podcast Portal, how do I add an episode to an existing podcast?

Note:
UITS will retire the Podcast Portal by the end of 2017, and is migrating content to Kaltura. More details will be forthcoming. Currently, there is a freeze on new portal account requests that will remain in place until after migration is complete.

To add an episode to an existing podcast using the Indiana University Podcast Portal:

  1. Access the IU Podcast Portal at http://podcast.iu.edu.
  2. At the top right, click Author Sign-In, and log in using your IU username and passphrase.
  3. Click to select the provider you were assigned when you created your account (e.g., UITS).
  4. At the bottom of your "Podcast Maintenance" page, under "Podcasts", find the podcast title to which you want to add an episode, and click Episodes.
  5. On the "Episode Maintenance" page, click Browse to locate the episode on your computer. Click the filename, and then click OK to select it for upload. Then click Upload.

    Do not include any spaces or special characters in the name of your audio or video file.

  6. When the upload is complete, enter episode information into the "Title", "Author", "Link", "Length", and "Description" fields. This information (i.e., metadata) is displayed to users when they download the episode to their podcatchers.
  7. When you're finished, click Save Episode.

To verify that the episode has uploaded properly, return to your "Podcast Maintenance" page, and locate your podcast. You should see your new episode listed at the bottom of the podcast's page. Those who subscribe to your podcast will receive the new episode when their podcatchers check for new episodes, or when they manually refresh their feeds, whichever is sooner.
