Podcasting is a potentially powerful tool for business, allowing messages to quickly and easily disseminate to a large audience at an extremely low cost. While traditional Podcasts were audio files only, video Podcasts are on the rise and are increasing the possible uses for this technology. It is now possible to use Podcasts for more than communication — you can also use them for training and to support performance at the jobsite. Podcasts are fast and cheap to develop and can reach a large audience quickly using basic technology readily available in most companies. By understanding the strengths and weaknesses of this tool, participants can make informed decisions as to when, where, why, and how to use Podcasts to their greatest advantage as part of their learning and performance support tool kit.

In this session, participants will explore what Podcasts are and how people have typically used them to date, and discover ways that they might use audio or video Podcasts for more than communication.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What Podcasts are
  • The strengths and weaknesses of Podcasts
  • The types of organizations that use Podcasts
  • Whether you can use Podcasts for training (by themselves or as part of a training program)
  • Whether you could use Podcasts for performance support

Audience: Those wanting to explore how to use video and audio Podcasts for training and performance support.
