Podcasts are audio programs that you can use in your class to enhance your content. They can be:
enhanced podcast = audio program with photos or images/clipart
Vodcast = using motion video and an RSS feed to subscribe to a program
Vlog - a video blog
All terms are really podcasts and the term can be used to describe any of the above.
