I’ve been wanting to blog about this for a while, but we had to keep the lid on until today. Microsoft just announced the Podcasting Kit for SharePoint (PKS), primarily developed by 3Sharp. PKS is a completely integrated kit that lets you use SharePoint as an enterprise-scale podcasting aggregator and management system. You can publish your own internal podcasts, plus you can catch and redistribute podcasts from other sources. Wherever their origin, the podcasts you manage with PKS can be rated by users, tagged using tag clouds, and played back using Silverlight so that you don’t need a separate podcasting device or application. We’ve already implemented PKS internally and will shortly be rolling out a PKS portal stuffed full of tasty IT Pro content– check our web site for updates.
