[TIPS] podcast widgets on your site


You may have already known this one, but it's new to me. http://www.springwidgets.com/

I've got Moodle class set up for a teacher of US. Government. There are some excellent podcasts from the federal government. (Here: http://www.usa.gov/Topics/Reference_Shelf/Libraries/Podcasts.shtml) Wouldn't it be cool to have them play right within the moodle class? If there was only some way to set up a player in moodle (or on your wiki or blog) that would take a podcast feed and let you play it right on the page.

Enter springwidgets. Give it the feed - or feeds of the podcasts you want and it creates a very cool player and the code to embed it in your blog, etc.

Oh, for those  who want to see the obvious icon to click on to get the code, theirs is prettu subtle. You click on the <> icon.
