OSU to offer podcasts

Oregon State University is close to inking a deal with Apple that would allow the university to use podcasts to disperse lectures and other material. The OSU website is already home to numerous audio and video files posted by varying departments, but the system is confusing and all of the pieces are spread throughout the site, according to The Daily Barometer online. "Our biggest [problem] is finding a way to manage all of that information," said John Greydanus, director of Outreach and media services. "We have been doing this for years, we now have a different method of dispersing information," the director added. Using Apple's iTunes service, all OSU podcasts will be comprehensively listed on the same Apple-hosted website, accessible through iTunes. In a similar move, Stanford University late last year began offering podcasts of faculty lectures, music recorded by Stanford students, and school football games via iTunes U.
