How do I allow students to upload podcast files?

Instructors can edit the Podcast tool permissions to allow students to upload and manage the site's Podcast files. This provides a convenient mechanism for students to share audio, video, and PowerPoint files with site participants.

Go to Podcasts.

Select the Podcasts tool from the Tool Menu in your site.

Click Permissions.

Click the Permissions button to adjust permissions of participants.

Modify the student tool permissions.

  1. Under the Student column, check the permission boxes for Create podcasts, Edit own podcasts, and Delete own podcasts.
  2. Click Save.

Student users will now have an "Add" button on their display of the Podcast tool allowing them to add podcast files.
