The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site uses digital media in many different aspects that provides the park with the ability to reach more than a local or statewide audience.  Almost every time President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter speak at the site it is captured either by digital video and/or audio for interpretive podcast and future research uses for the staff.  The site has over twenty podcasts available through the I-tunes store for download and in addition to the podcast, the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site has a cell phone audio and video tour through on-cell systems that provide visitors with the accessibility to call after hours to learn more about the site.  The interpretive and educational division at the site also offers I-Pads and I-Pods to be checked out to incoming educational groups which aid them in their visit by providing digital video and audio of President Carter explaining various sites in and around Plains.  These sites include Downtown Plains, The Plains Depot, Plains High School and The Boyhood Farm of Jimmy Carter.
