After that, you'll learn how to record a professional-sounding audio podcast with a very simple recording tool you already have. You'll edit the file with another free software program, add music to it, and then post it online for others to enjoy. Your instructor will guide you through all these steps. Finally, you'll find out how to record a video podcast. You'll use pre-recorded video to learn the editing process, and then you'll apply what you've learned to your own video file. You'll edit it, add special effects, drop in a podcasting-safe music file, and then publish it online.Through hands-on exercises, you'll discover the benefits of using free web tools like Blogger, WordPress, Audacity, and YouTube. Guided by an expert instructor, you'll find that creating a blog and podcast is much easier than you ever imagined. And by the end of this course, you'll be amazed how much you've accomplished.
