Podcasts have become increasingly popular over the past several years and is a medium that is reaching avid listeners all around the world. YouTube is a platform that garners millions of viewers each day. Imagine combining both audio and video to widen your reach and build a loyal following. If you are positioning yourself to become an industry leader, have a message that will inspire, educate or entertain, or you’re looking for a fun new hobby, both the podcasting and YouTube platforms could be the perfect way to amplify your unique message.

In this course we will cover the benefits of both platforms and get practical tips including developing a show concept, finding your ideal listener/viewer, creating compelling content, essential gear, how and where to record your episodes, and basic editing tips. You will also learn how to launch podcast and YouTube channel so that you can share your message with the world.



In addition to the in-person meetings that will take place on Saturday and Sunday, this class will include pre-assignments and post-assignments as part of the 36-hour class.

You will be invited to join Google Classroom 2 weeks before class starts, which is the platform we use for our class. Check your spam folder, as invitations to join Google Classroom sometimes end up there. Please make sure you register for the course with a valid email address, since this is where you will receive the invitation and later, your certificate. Your email has to be Google compatible, so it’s best to use gmail, outlook, hotmail or yahoo. If you do not receive a notification to join Google Classroom, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact us.

The pre-assignments will be posted on Google Classroom 2 weeks before class starts. Make sure you join Google Classroom early and complete the assignments BEFORE coming to class. It will take you approximately 9 hours to complete.

The post-assignments will be posted on Google Classroom on the weekend of class, and also consist of 9 hours. You must complete them in order to receive your course completion certificate. Course completion certificates will be emailed to you, a few days after the official class end date. Class end date is 2 weeks after the in-person portion of the class, and after you have completed the follow-up assignments. If you need your certificate earlier, please indicate it during the registration process and we will email it to you as soon as you have successfully completed all assignments.



Attendance is mandatory Saturday and Sunday. If you are late or leave early, you will not receive a course completion certificate. Please note, that this is a weekend intensive class and the days are long. We expect you to come to class well rested and ready to participate.
