Start the Podcast! A Low-Cost, Efficient, Portable, and Personalized Way to Deliver Training

Course Info

Podcasting is an accepted and effective way to provide and consume self-paced, personalized training and development content, largely because its efficient and portable content fits easily into our busy lives. Through concrete approaches for bringing the elements of great audio and video podcasts together, you will learn strategies to design, develop, and publish your own podcast on any budget (even zero). This hands-on workshop addresses important nuances in the process, including interview techniques, podcast branding, effective marketing strategies, and how to produce an internal podcast for your organization. Please bring your own Wi-Fi enabled laptop or mobile device, with headphones to use with either device.
