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

UITS is working on retiring the Podcast Portal. On Friday, March 16, 2018, will point to Kaltura. Content has been migrated from the old portal to Kaltura. Content subscribers will need to re-subscribe to the RSS feed due to the changed podcast URLs as a result of this migration.

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

  1. Access the IU Podcast Portal at
  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.
