How can we raise the value of learning in our churches? Not a rhetorical question. I'd really like to read your reply.

So what are the best resources, apps, etc. for Android users who want to find and listen to podcasts?

I'm not an Android user, but a friend asked me for advice about that. He wants to help Android users find his new podcast.

When I started my podcast, my brother asked how to subscribe on his Android, so I put an entry on the menu that explains how to subscribe to the show using Doggcatcher. He likes it so well and is listening to so many other podcasts he is getting behind listening to mine. Hehehe. We just find the RSS feed on a website and manually put it in.

When connecting your USB microphone to your iPhone (or iPad) and BossJock, can you use ANY lightning-to-usb connector, or does it have to be the camera adaptor?

When I write, my wife edits. So I finished the rough draft of this article and waited for her to edit.

While waiting, +Seth Godin wrote a post called “Sign your work,” and +John Saddington agreed with Seth and wrote his own version, “Signing Your Work.”

Both of those are worth reading, but the gist of each article is different than this one. Except for the “sign your work” part, of course.

My focus is on the written word, especially blog posts (and even show notes for podcasts).

This article explains what Digital Media Ministries at the Digital Ministry School is all about, and explains the 2 sides of digital media that you must understand in order to use it effectively.

We all do this. We all have grammatical habits that can affect other people negatively. These kinds of things just flow out of our mouths or onto the screen as if we have no editor in our brains.

"If you’re reading this," share the worn-out words and phrases that you read or hear in podcasts. You know, share those things that drive you batty.

There are some things we shouldn't say. For example, if you're reading this, you really don't need me to write, "if you're reading this" because, well, you are reading this—no "if" about it. The ve...

It's always important to define your terms, and I do define education in this article.

To me, education is not simply a lecture, reading a textbook, or watching PowerPoint presentation. Those are good ways to share information and learning can take place, but education is much more than that.

And in the church, especially with concerns over biblical illiteracy, education deserves more attention because education is essential to the Christian life.

Okay, so I just listened to Podcasters Roundtable and the potential problem of hosting the RSS feed on your web host was brought up. (Lots of hits; too much bandwidth; web host shuts down my site).

So if I were to switch to hosting the RSS feed on Libsyn, how does that work and what does that mean. Would I no longer have MySite.com/feed/podcast as my main feed that I offer to people?

I'm catching up to the discussion, so please forgive me if I've missed a crucial part.

+Jason E. Norris: if you haven't started your show yet, for fear of encountering this, or some other unknown technical problem.... start it now. Choose Wordpress, and get moving. Host your media with Libsyn or Blubrry, and generate the feed yourself.

If you wait for all of the technical fog to clear permanently, you'll be waiting forever. Get in the game, and realize you'll have to solve a few issues on the fly, as you record, produce, and release the show. +Daniel J. Lewis  correctly pointed out that you probably won't encounter any problems until your audience is very, very large -- and at that point, your host will have some helpful pointers, I'm sure.

But my biggest point is to start now, if you haven't already. If you let fear of what might happen paralyze you, you'll never accomplish anything. What's another word for fear? "Pre-optimization", or the idea that you're optimizing something that isn't a problem, and you don't know how to properly alleviate the strain from it, like you would had you experienced it.

Don't pre-optimize. Get in the game, and make awesome shit. Now.

Wait! Before you create that amazing digital media content for your class, consider these 4 guidelines. They'll help you design something that's more likely to be used by your learners. #digitalmedia   #teaching  
When you teach, do your students prepare? Or do people show up without having read any Bible passages or commentary on the lesson that you spent all week preparing to teach? Christian researchers h...

My goal is to teach, inspire, and equip you to use digital media for ministry.
Introduction
I've been looking for a way to bring together all my interests in communication, Christian education, and digital media. I think this might be it.

For anyone looking to do something in ministry, there are a lot of opportunities with digital media. I would like to show you those opportunities and inspire you to learn how to use digital technology that is readily available.

And in the process, I would like to demonstrate how digital technology can be used by providing a service for education ministers and Christian educators.
