Note:
UITS is working on retiring the Podcast Portal. On Friday, March 16, 2018, https://podcast.iu.edu 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.

Using the Indiana University Podcast Portal, you can edit the data (e.g., title and keywords) and change the artwork associated with a podcast you created previously.

Editing a podcast

To edit an existing podcast:

  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 you wish to edit, and click Edit.
