UPDATE 26 Dec 2014: This podcast is apparently no longer listed in iTunes, and the referenced Moodle server/site is offline. I updated, however, the direct MP3/audio links below to these recorded podcasts from 2008. I also updated the podcast feed.
I played podcast catch-up this evening and published the last two sessions of the five course adult class I taught this fall at our church titled, “Exploring the Biblical World via Google Earth.” These five episodes are available in a podcast feed and directly in the iTunes Store (for free, of course!)
I have also updated the Moodle course for this class with embedded flash-player links to each session recording.
Session1: Ur / Iraq
Session2: Egypt / Sinai
Session3: Judea / Israel / Palestine
Session4: Paul’s Missionary Journeys
Session5: Turkey / Anatolia
This is exciting. I’ve been listed previously and am still listed as the author of several podcasts included in the iTunes podcast directory, but it’s great to see my fall course “Exploring the Biblical World Through Google Earth” is now also listed. A current, simple keyword search for “google earth” in iTunes yields just eight results in the “podcasts” category:”
The new era of Internet broadcasting has dawned. How amazing I didn’t need to purchase a radio antenna or even purchase airtime on one to realize the dream of global content and and idea distribution. Do we realize the amazing implications of this?!
Thanks to James Deaton‘s recommendation I shared the beta website Bible Map this evening in my five week course “Exploring the Biblical World Through Google Earth.”
BibleMap.org is a great resource for readily identifying and finding more information about locations mentioned throughout the Bible.
I have added audio recordings of my “Exploring the Biblical World Through Google Earth” classes as a podcast to our class Moodle website. So far we’ve had two classes, we’ll have three more in this particular Wednesday night series. The five weeks immediately following this class I’ll offer “Lifelong Learning via iTunes University,” which also has a Moodle course component hosted on the same server.
UPDATE: I’ve added embedded Flash player links to the Moodle page for our class podcast. (For info on how I did this, see my post “Embedding mp3 audio files with a free flash player in Moodle, a wiki or a blog.”)
