A lot of people are on the go and want an easy way to review their training courses. In the old days before those fancy MP3 players, there weren’t many mobile training options, so people had to get creative.
However, that’s not the case today, where podcasting is a reality for many training organizations. Creating a podcast of your training course in Presenter ’09 is one of the new publishing options.
When you choose to publish as a podcast, Presenter ’09 will combine the audio from your slides and create a single MP3 file. You can upload the MP3 to your portable player or you can add it to a web page.
Publish to Podcast
Here’s how to do it:
- Click the publish option and select podcast
- Select the publish location.
- Add your podcast properties.
- Select your output options and publish.
Once the file is published, you have a folder that contains the MP3 and a web page that includes a podcast player. The web page that is created is plain and you can always edit it so that it integrates with your other web pages.
Now you have two options: You can place your podcast on a web page for people to listen to, or you can make the MP3 available for download.
In either case, Presenter ’09 offers an easy podcast solution for your rapid elearning courses.
