Week 7 -: Sharing Audio-And music can fill your heart with Love –

Hello Dear Wikis and partcipants

In fact our title for the seventh week plog carrys something new and Interesting. It seeks creativity in building our assignment and creativity in the method of applying it. So, we are learning in this week how to creat a beatiful  description of a beautiful image depending on both audio software and photographing software. In addition to that we are studying how to share our audios as educational resources online by visiting the following interesting audio sites.

Lets have a look on something new and creative for those who enjoy using audio software.

Beginning with Podcasting, it is a means of distribution. So, we have a series of digital-media files distributed over the internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers. The feeds are usually distributed using RSS or Atom protocols to the podcatching client-Apple’s i Tunes player-the required software for podcasts’ syndication.

There are three way of listening to the Podcasts: through an MP3player, by using computer media player software, or by adapting VoIP technology through dialing a phone number. On the other hand, there are a wide variety of applications for podcast, including distribution of school lessons, conference meetings updates and public safety messages by police stations.

Being a means of distribution and sharing information, it became a popular way of learning. Teachers and students can share information and communicate with each others using this publishing tool. Thus podcast users may record book discussions, language lessons, interviews and music performances, as well.

Moving now to Ogg Vorbis or Vorbis audio compression, we have here a compression tool- an open non patent, royalty free and general-purpose compressed audio format for mid to high quality.

While the Audio creative commons indicates featured creators, tools and works like the “featured audio sites” wich include an outline to a  both legal and practical issues that are specifically relevant for podcasters, such as using music and video in a podcast. Other examples are “legal music for remixing” which points out to the making use of  CC-licenses, “pump audio” which refres to the process of licensing in commercial media projects, “ccMixter” which tracks samples across different artists, “sectionz”, a music community that offers Creative Common-licensed tracks, “Dmusic”, “Freesound”-A collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed works, “Featured Audio works”, “Neeru Paharia”, etc. 

After studying the above three  Open podcast hosting sites, we have to learn about  podcasting services through the following two examples.

The first one is “Odeo”, through wich audio channels—podcasts, music, Mp3 files and much more are played. the other one is “Switchpod”, which is a podcast host that hosts audio and video files adding them to an rss feed that people can use and download.

We need finally to know about the Free,Cross-Platform Sound Editor “Audacity” which is identified as an open source software for recording and editing sounds and is available for more than one operating system. The” Audacity” is sudtained by “The Lame” which is a project which was aiming at speed up the dist10 sources, and leave its quality untouched. Today, it is considered the best MP3 encoder at mid-high bitrates and at VBR.

In conclusion, we are introduced to a new technology which depends mainly on RSS distribution channels technique by which we may share a live communication, worldwide, using our sounds,images, as well as writings. 

Thanks to the Podcasts’ technology and technicians
