P02 BYOL: Creating eLearning Podcasts from Scratch
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, October 23
People today are always on the run. And while this can get in the way of traditional training methods, it can actually be a plus for an unexpected medium you might not yet be using: podcasting. Thanks to easy-to-use recording tools and the fact that most people carry mobile devices that can play audio files, podcasts are an easy way for you to create content that’s a perfect fit for on-the-go learning.
In this workshop, you’ll discover the benefits of podcasts for learning and go over everything you need to know to create and launch podcasts in your organization. You’ll get a step-by-step guide on how to start designing and developing your podcast, including basic equipment and software recommendations (with budget-friendly options), guidelines for writing great content for this medium, and tips for overcoming common pitfalls. During the daylong workshop, you’ll discover how to turn your podcast from average to great, go over podcast workflow and management, and even create your own podcast using the tools and skills discussed!
In this session, you will learn:
- About the benefits of podcasting for learning
- How to start developing your own podcasts
- What goes into a podcast development workflow
- About inexpensive (and even free) tools that can help you create and share a high-quality podcast
