Enhanced Podcast

An enhanced podcast is a podcast multimedia format that allows images inside of your audio podcast. It is like a slideshow with your audio and can be an effective way to present your information.

The most popular approach is based on AAC and Apple's QuickTime. Playing these enhanced podcasts on a computer requires Apple's Quicktime Player or iTunes software. The only portable devices capable of playing these enhanced podcasts are iPods.

Authoring is possible on a Macintosh computer using applications such as Apple's GarageBand, ProfCast and Apple's Chapter Tool. It can be accomplished on a PC using Camtasia or other screen capture plus voice recording software.
