Read, listen and record a podcast task

Here's the instructions for this task I've used with recent class blogs.
  1. Read your classmates' posting on their favourite groups and singers.
  2. Chose one that you think you have the most to say about (it could be because you like them too or because you think they are really bad). Pay particular attention to what your classmate has said about why the group/singer has been successful.
  3. Go to Podomatic
  4. Log in with the login I've given you
  5. Click on My Podcast
  6. Click on Post New Episode
  7. Click on Record with your webcam or microphone
  8. Click on Record and talk about what you think is interesting about the group or singer and say whether you think they deserve the success they have had.
  9. Preview what you have recorded and click on Next step
  10. Give the episode a title e.g. Ann on Rihanna
  11. Click on Next step
  12. Skip the next page by clicking on Next step
  13. Skip the next page by clicking on Next step
  14. Click on Post Episode
  15. Click on My Podcast Page
  16. Click on the title of your episode
  17. Copy its URL (address) from the browser
  18. Create a New Post on the blog
  19. Give it a title e.g. Ann on the Rihanna
  20. Write the word "podcast" and create a link (clicking on the chain icon) to your podcast episode.
Here's an example of the results
