Have a pod?
Texas A&M International University has a podcast just for you!
In an effort to provide the Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) community with an additional news and information source, TAMIU now offers iTAMIU Podcasts.
Podcasting is free audio programming that listeners download onto an iPod or other MP3 player from a designated Internet site or by using an application such as Apple’s iTunes. The files are stored on the player for the individual’s listening at any time. Information about the file and links to the programming source are embedded and available by Internet.
iTAMIU Podcasts include on-campus musical performances, special lectures or speeches and events coverage.
In addition, iTAMIU News, initiated in January of 2006, provides a weekly podcast of news and campus life insights.
Enjoy regular iTAMIU Podcasts programming on your desktop or MP3 Player by subscribing as detailed below in “How Do I Get Started?”
Here is a list of our current offerings.
How do I get started?
The basic requirements for podcasting are a computer, podcasting software (see below) and an Internet connection (the higher the speed, the better). To take your podcast with you, an iPod or any MP3 player is also needed.
To begin, download and install podcasting software onto your computer (PC or Mac). Though every application is different, there are generally directions to "add" or "subscribe to" a podcast feed (usually just as simple as copying and pasting the podcast URL, from the link "POD," from the list above into your podcasting application). In iTunes, version 4.9 and higher, the process for subscribing to podcasts and even downloading single podcast files is greatly simplified. Simply click on the link "iTunes" and it will launch the iTunes application, taking you straight to the podcast.
Once subscribed to a podcast, the next time you "Check for New Podcasts," an MP3 of your selected program will be on your computer, and if you're set up for it, on your iPod as well.
In order to listen to podcasts you will need to install a podcasting application. There are an increasing amount of software applications being designed specifically for receiving podcasts. Below you'll find a growing list of these applications.
