What are the SniteCasts?

Podcast Icon

These web pages feature a growing series of podcasts, audio programs designed to be published online on a free subscription basis. The first twenty "SniteCasts" were produced by students in Chris Clark's "Applied Multimedia Technology" class, offered through the Computer Applications Program (CAPP). Subsequent programs were done by museum staff.

The SniteCasts are available on this website. Listen on a computer or get the series and transfer it to a media player, such as an iPod. Compatible players display a small image of the art work.

About the student-created programs

Prof. Clark's students first received the title of an artwork and a printed description. Their goal was to learn about audio recording and editing, so students were not expected to do extensive research. They did make a personal commentary, though, and questions were provided. Clark required his students to make high quality recordings, and thanks to a production grant from the Center for Creative Computing, he was able to loan out portable digital audio recording equipment. Students were allowed to recruit someone else to do the actual reading out loud, and some chose friends with radio experience. The podcast project also demanded a background music track that could be shared legally. To meet this requirement, most of the students downloaded music from GarageBand.com, a popular source of "podsafe" music. Students recorded voice segments, transferred digital recordings to a computer, and then used software to incorporate the soundtrack.
