Just thought people here would like to know about some shareware called Profcast.

It works on a Mac and allows you to record your voice presentation and Powerpoint slides simultaneously and create a podcast from them.

I've just started using it but have found it very simple to use having now created a few simple podcasts.

The software costs $30 if you want to continue using it after 15 days which I will be!

I'd agree with Simone - we've been piloting profcast in the Maths Dept for podcasting some lectures. Very easy to use for the perspective of the lecturer. Some issues about lapel mics which we need to work on - i.e., getting the sound quality right. Also, allows easy publication to the web with the creation of appropriate tagging.

There are a couple of issues (which other users might be able to help with), firstly I need to work on enhanced podcasts (mainly for iPod users). So I'll need to take the powerpoint headers to build the table of contents. Should be easily achieved within the software. Secondly, to try to capture the what is being written on the whiteboard(s) etc., i.e., move away from a predefined present and talk approach.

Any profcast users got the solutions?
