Course Outline

Effective Video podcasting

Effective Video podcasting


This is a 2 day, instructor-led course.


A video clip on a website is usually the first thing visitors will click on. Get it right and they’ll be impressed. Get it wrong, and they’ll turn away, disappointed and let down. You can’t afford to miss the opportunity for effective communication that well produced video podcasts give you.  And the great news is that it needn’t cost more than a few pounds.

This course will show you the what, how and why of podcasting.
