You're listening to Ed Radio, your online learning and educational technology internet radio station. We collect audio recordings from around the internet and collect them here for your listening pleasure.

Every day, as new content is produced from around the internet, it is collected here. We don't know exactly what you'll be hearing, but we're sure it will be interesting and enlightening.

This is still a new service so there are still some bugs to be worked out. Sometimes the clips won't play on your player. If that happens, just move to the next item in the list to continue listening.

Today's new material is presented first. Once this has played - and how much there is willvary each day - you'll hear content that was previously broadcast. We hope to have enough new stuff each day to provide for varied listening, but this depends on what's available on any given day.

So welcome to Ed Radio, created and produced by Stephen Downes. Sit back, and enjoy the ride.

How Ed Radio is Produced

Producing Content for Ed Radio

To be included in Ed Radio, content must be encoded in MP3 audio and listed by an RSS feed aggregated by Edu_RSS. Here is the list of contributing RSS feeds. If you do not own one of these feeds, you will need to convince one of their authors to link to your audio file.

If you are creating an MP3 audio track, be sure to introduce yourself and your item; listeners won't be able to tell what they're listening to otherwise.

Please note that Edu_RSS captures only the first 600 characters in the description of a blog entry - I plan to change that, but that's the way it is for now. So if you run an MP3 in your blog, put the link into the beginning of your entry.
