Well, I got this out the door today. We went from concept to product in right around 6 months. I suppose I should say I not we since I did the actual development myself.
In a nutshell, Classcaster is a turn-key blogging, podcasting, audio-blogging, telephony solution aimed at education (that is CALI’s mission after all). Yep, on this one system you get a blog, podcast ready, the capalbilty to call in posts, RSS2 feeds with enclosures, an embedded Flash player, automatic generation of posts once a call is complete. Pretty cool. Next is an ISO version so you play along at home:)
