6.3 Assignment. Key Project – Creating a Podcast
Podcasts originated in 2004, when MTV VJ Adam Curry and software developer Dave Winer distributed their showsÂ Daily Source CodeÂ andÂ Morning Coffee NotesÂ via RSS feed. The most popular podcast to date, Serial, has been downloaded 340 million times! Clearly, people are talkingâ€¦and people are listening (Sternbergh, 2019). Podcasts offer information, but often go beyond that to engage listeners in ways that allow us to connect with one another. Podcasts are fairly easy and inexpensive to produce, and they cater to the podcastersâ€™ personal interests (Sternbergh, 2019). Since by virtue of being enrolled in the BSOL program, it is evident that you are interested in organizational leadership, the key project for this course is to create your own podcast! Are you ready to get creative?
Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:
