If I want to provide a training course to help people to write, record and produce audio drama, I will have to consider the methods of delivery available to me. What formats can be used to lay down advice and guidance that will be most effective for the client? The internet offers us the freedom to create and distribute information that can help others.
The main categories I’d like to consider as options are;
1. Audio (Podcasts or audiobooks)
2. Written (Blogs, ebooks, or email courses)
3. Visual (Video)
As the ultimate aim of my work is to help people to produce audio content, doing so through the medium of audio seems like a legitimate and relevant option. I found a great guide on ‘Using audio in teaching & learning‘ on the Jisc Digital Media website.
“Audio…demonstrated a capacity to facilitate authentic engagement, allowing students to connect in various ways to the outside world, both as listeners and publishers. The ease and speed with which digital audio can be deployed was used to support timely interventions and in some cases promoted information currency and responsiveness.”
