TILT Episode 1 (MPEG-4 Format) - Using the Internet to Enhance Writing

What I'm hoping is that by publishing in MPEG-4 format, iTunes users will be able to subscribe to this eduvlog and will be able to view episodes right in iTunes and eventually a video iPod. Also, Mac and Windows users with Quicktime Player and Real Player will be both be able to view episodes.

I used River Past Video Cleaner Pro to convert the original Windows Media files, and in my attempt to keep the file size as low as possible, the audio isn't the greatest. I sort of sound like Darth Vader only stranger - my apologies. Episode 4 on Problem-Based Learning with Technology is almost finished!
