    Radio Anywhere

    Has anybody heard/used this? It's meant to be like a radio station for schools, where you publish your own content.

    Are there any advantages of this over just a Shoutcast type server where kids could record stuff and stream it out.

    What exactly does radioanywhere broadcast to?

    Any help would be a bonus

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    I'd be wary of any licensing gotchas. Does it mention anything in that regard?

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    We just got an email from the 'supposed' ICT Co-ordinator here (think brewsters millions). It just had a link to radioanywhere.co.uk and said 'could be interesting dont you think'

    meaning we have to research it. but we know nothing about it at all.
    it sounds like kids record some audio somewhere, put a few sound effects over it, then upload it to this website, and i'm assuming the links are available for download to things like ipods, but i honestly have no idea, i'm just guessing

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    Just a bunch of software for creating and publishing your own podcasts by the look of it.

    A bit of information on the site about it all and it's something that anyone could do.

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    Hence me thinking that with a shoutcast server you could publish your own content for free (not copyrighted content of course)....things like reviews, or news or stuff or whatever student radio could do apart from music.

    MK-2: And/or use a flash player like we've done and put MP3s on the website.

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    I've got a flash mp3 player embedded in my MediaWiki student intranet.

    They're not selling audacity though just explaining how to use it and pushing it as a good piece of software to use.

    Their radio kit is some microphones and an iriver portable recorder.

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    plexer: where did you get the info on their kit?
    we emailed them asking for more info, that was 2 days ago.

    i'd much rather doing this our own way if we have the choice, and do it open source and in house, not have a company try to do it all for us

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    I have had some details back on the and from what i can find out is all they are is a hosting company hosting podcasts which you can do from your own site. All the software is opensource and they do say this. I have not got a price seems like someone else is jumping on the education bandwagon.

    Re: Radio Anywhere

    Hi,

    Our primary school joined Radio Anywhere in February and we've found it very good and simple to use. Think their training package and equipment is expensive though. We asked if we could join... just to use them as a host for our podcasts. We had used other free sites but found problems with streaming etc and adverts. Think we paid £350 for initial setup and then each year it will be £250, not cheap!

    Parents love it and they can leave messages.

    Kathy
