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 metadata for a podcast episode, or delete episodes.

On this page:


Editing episode metadata

Note:
Due to the asynchronous nature of RSS subscription, it is possible that, by the time your changes to metadata are reflected in subscribers' podcatchers, subscribers have already listened to and deleted the podcast episode in question. Therefore, UITS recommends that you make sure metadata is accurate before you upload an episode.

To edit metadata (e.g., title, author, description) for a podcast episode:

  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 that includes the episode you want to edit, and then click Episodes.
  5. On the "Episode Maintenance" page, under "Episodes", find the episode you wish to edit, and then click Edit.
  6. Edit the information (i.e., metadata) as necessary. When you're finished, click Save Episode.

The podcast portal should reflect your changes immediately.

Deleting a podcast episode

To delete a podcast episode:

  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 that includes the episode you want to delete, and then click Episodes.
  5. On the "Episode Maintenance" page, under "Episodes", find the title of the episode you want to delete, and then click Delete.
  6. If you're certain you want to delete the episode, click OK. To cancel the deletion, click Cancel.
Note:
If subscribers have already downloaded the podcast episode, or their podcatchers have already downloaded the episode, they will still retain the episode.
