CFCC has an iTunesU account, which allows instructors to upload lectures, which students can play in iTunes (free). First, faculty must write their script, record the lecture, edit it and save the audio in a compatible format. Keep in mind that you should provide a transcript for podcasts to meet accessibility guidelines.
