Podcasts are audio shows created with the intent to communicate an idea, tell a story, or to simply share audio recordings of whatever sort. In everyday sense of the term, podcasts are also used to refer to video recordings though many prefer to use the technical terminology: vidcasts or videocasts to refer to them. The educational potential of podcasts is huge and students can use them for a variety of purposes some of which include: delivering research content, creating and sharing audio (video) stories, recording and sharing learning experiences with others and many more.

To create a podcast you will need access to an audio recording app. Below are some of the best iPad apps you can use  to create podcasts. Check them out and share with us what you think of them.

1- VoiceThread

"Create and share dynamic conversations around documents, snapshots, diagrams and videos -- basically anything there is to talk about. You can talk, type, and draw right on the screen. VoiceThread takes your conversations to the next level, capturing your presence, not just your comments."
2- iPadio

"The iPadio app lets you record up to 60 minutes of high quality audio and then add titles, descriptions, images, and geo-locate your recording before it is instantly uploaded to your ipadio.com account or cross-posted to your Twitter, Facebook, Wordpress, Posterous, Blogger, Live Spaces, or LiveJournal accounts. Each audio clip also comes with its own selection of embed codes, which you can grab off your online ipadio account, meaning you can also put your recording on your website."
3- Mobile Podcaster

"Mobile Podcaster is an iPhone & iPad podcast publishing application that lets you record and publish audio recordings and podcast episodes (up to 15 minutes long) directly to your WordPress website (both Wordpress.org and Wordpress.com)."
4- Cinchcast

"With the Cinchcast app, users can quickly capture and publish a high quality recording of any length and attach an image and text information to the recording. The recording is automatically saved to the users account on the Cinchcast platform, where it can easily be published to any website or blog and can be syndicated to iTunes. Users can also share content directly on Facebook, Twitter, or with an email to any of their contacts directly from the app."
