Podcasting in a Writing Class? Considering the Possibilities



Music Resources

Students may want to use copyrighted music in their podcasts. Depending on their use, it may fall under Fair Use and you are welcome to permit such use as you see fit.

I advise my students to not use copyrighted music without permission, due to how our school approaches iTunes University. However, there are several podsafe and/or Creative Commons licensed works that can be used in podcasts (especially non-commercial podcasts) for free or limited costs. Here are some podsafe/Creative Commons music resources:
