Internal TCD podcasts now available from outside College network

PodcastingIS Services are pleased to announce that podcasts made available on the internal podcast server at http://podcast.tcd.ie can now be accessed from any computer with internet access.  To this point this service was only available when connected to the College network.

From this point when accessing http://podcast.tcd.ie from outside the College network, registered College users will need to authenticate using their College username and network login password.

If you know the course code for your podcast series, usually in form xy1234, and you have been informed that there is content available on the internal podcaset server, then you can browse to a dedicated page with the full list of downloadable content at http://podcast.tcd.ie/xy1234.  If you are not sure of this code please contact the content uploader, often the relevant course lecturer.

There are three main links at http://podcast.tcd.ie.  Registered content providers can upload content via the ‘Upload a Podcast’ link as before, and this service is still only availabe when connected to the College network.  The ‘List of Podcast Courses’ link provides an updated directory list of available content for each of the different podcast series codes.  Further help on using the podcasting service in College is available via the ‘Podcasting Resources’ link.
