Podcasting for School Administrators

Podcasts represent a new and unique opportunity for administrators to deliver information to the school community.

Audio works in situations where reading or watching video isn’t practical.

Keep parents informed

Whooshkaa makes it easy for parents to listen to short updates or entire school newsletters when they’re driving to work or out and about.

Distribute private podcasts via your school app, website or popular podcast apps like Apple Podcasts. Administrators can add or remove users from the distribution group at any time.

Professional Development

Podcasts aren’t just for students and parents!

Teacher professional development courses can be delivered via audio to time poor teachers for consumption while they’re on the move.

Virtual Voice Newsletters

With Whooshkaa you don’t even need a microphone to create a podcast.

Using artificial intelligence and our synthesised voice technology, Whooshkaa can turn text, like your school newsletter, into realistic virtual voice.

Podcasting for Teachers

Teachers can use podcasts to deliver lesson content directly to students. Entire lessons, revision or for students with special needs who find audio more accessible than written or video content.

Easy for students

Students subscribe to a podcast using popular, free podcast apps and receive instant notifications when new podcast “episodes” are available.

The podcasts are only available to a private list of students managed by the teacher or school administrator.
