Comments For: Getting Started with Podcasting

"Clear, detailed info from very knowledgeable instructor. I left feeling that I know enough about the technical side to get some basic equipment and systems set up and get started with podcasting. Terrific."Carolyn on 1/13/2016
Jeff is the man. He's super personable, enthusiastic and organized. I give Jeff high marks for being completely knowledgeable and accomplished. Glad I took the class and like the idea of a lab class, where we could watch Jeff do his thing and actually construct a podcast from start to finish. I'd sign up in a flash.Jan on 8/6/2015

The entire class was enthusiastic about a follow-up session, involving producing a short podcast in the classroom/studio! Jeff (the instructor) agreed that a hands-on gathering would be excellent!Joseph on 6/24/2015

The course was well organized but flexible enough to adapt to the needs of the students. There were great tips on which technologies to use for each step of the process, from recording to promotion, as well as how to use them.Asa on 1/28/2010
