I normally don't post entries about podcasting classes because they're a dime a dozen and I'm always skeptical about the instructors. This class, however, violates both of those rules and will prove to be a good solid course on podcasting.
How is this course different?
The instructor is a fellow Calgarian podcaster named Daryl Cognito who is the host of the Poddog Show and ringmaster of the podCalgary podcasting network.
Daryl is a real live podcaster which is sadly rare in the classroom standup "I'm gonna teach you how to podcast" world.
Daryl didn't just decide to run a class, he's actually teaching a class offered by Chinook Learning Services which is an extension of the Calgary Board of Education. Yeah - mainstream interest - bring it on!
Five hours of one-on-one instruction from an actual podcaster will set you back a measly $69CDN. Sounds a little better than the $600 CDs that the snake oilers are selling.
In Calgary? Feel like taking a drive here? The next couple of classes are running Oct 21st and Nov 4th with more to follow in the Spring. Details here.
