Using the IU Podcast Portal, how do I edit data or change artwork for 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.

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.

On this page:


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.
  5. Under "Edit Podcast", edit the information and/or alter the selections as necessary. When you're finished, click Save Podcast.
Note:
The podcast portal will reflect your changes immediately, but there may be a delay before they are reflected in subscribers' podcatchers, due to the asynchronous nature of RSS subscription.

Changing podcast artwork

  2. At the top right, click Author Sign-in, and log in using your IU username and passphrase.
