Default Podcast settings.

What podcast setting have you found that most users prefer? At our University the default setting is set for Picture-in-Picture but I wonder if the Side-by-Side podcast setting is preferable.

    With side by side, if you don't leave room for the presenter window on the slide, it could cover up potentially important data on the slide/screen capture.

    We use secondary only since side by side minimizes the size of the slide/screen capture.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Secondary is a great idea for the default setting.

    We use side by side as default. I'm not sure if any faculty change it or not in their course.

    An .mp3 format would be useful for students who wish to listen to their lectures whilst they are on the move.

    @Niall Collins You can download MP3 files as audio podcasts.

    Audio podcasts are not MP3 anymore, they are now MP4 audio which isn't compatible with some car stereos.

    @Jeff Maher Yup you are correct. I forgot the audio podcast is an MP4.
