PODCASTING

Description: A podcast is a digital audio file that is posted on the Web for others to download or stream. They are usually created as a series of episodes with a similar theme.

Listeners can play them at their convenience, using smart phones or computers.

In this one-session class you will learn how to operate the audio equipment, how to post files to the LTC podcast webpage, and the basics of creating compelling audio content. Podcasts cannot include copyrighted content.
