As part of our commitment to supporting you with tools that will improve your online classroom instructions, here is one of those tools we will be bringing to you in the weeks ahead. Spreaker is a tool that makes communication between an instructor and a learner more effective through live or recorded podcasts
With Spreaker, You can create your own podcast put them in a website and promote them through any media. It’s like having your live or pre-recorded 30 minute long radio show, available on the web. And this can be used in the classroom as well. So how do you integrate Spreaker into your course on Eliademy? Let’s go through this one after the other.
As an instructor, you can make live recordings for students as content material for a course. Spreaker offers this service to allow the creators such as an instructor of a course on Eliademy to record a 30 minute live session or broadcast. Here is a quick demonstration of how to do it:
Note: You must have an account on Spreaker and Eliademy to be able to do this.
1. Click on the Broadcast option to create a live session.
2. Write the tittle of the Broadcast and click on “Next”. It also specifies the websites where you can share the information after you finish.
3. Click on the button shown on the picture to start recording live. You also have other features to make your recording more fun and adapted to your needs. To share the broadcast, click on Share URL, on the upper right corner.
4. Attach the link as content material on your Eliademy course. If it is a live podcast, inform the students the day and the time the broadcast will be recorded live. If it is a recorded podcast, just upload as a material available anytime and anyplace. You can also add a brief description of the content so it will be easier to find among the rest of the material.
The good news is that students can also create their own podcasts if required by the teacher as a response to a task, for instance a language communication class.
The use of such tools as Spreaker with Eliademy is only limited by the user’s ingenuity. So be creative, discover and enhance learning on Eliademy with even more tools.
