Learning Emerging Media

Learning ‘Casts are Cool

Posted by emac3326 on September 7, 2006

People used to laugh when I told them I started watching a videocast on yoga. But I found the idea profound. If someone can do one on yoga, then why not a personal trainer, or a landscaper, or a nutricianist? You may attend my yoga classes, or I train you, or I help you lose weight and, oh by the way, here is a little value-add — my pod- or videocast. Who remembers all the correct moves when away from yoga class or weight training? New media is giving service oriented professionals a way to express themselves, establish themselves as experts, and to rise above the noise in competitive fields.

Mary got me thinking about this subject with her two contributions this week — one on yoga, the other on the Japanese language.

My two casts for this week are one from Yogamazing and one on Japanese Language. The yogamazing one is on “alternate nose breathing”, which the yoga teacher here mentioned last week, and I didn’t think he was being serious. The cast is here: http://podcasts.yahoo.com/episode?s=8d951432cc452b244da5892ff97ba7b1&e=135.
The Japanese podcasts are various japanese language lessons. As I’m interested in learning Japanese, these would be pretty useful to listen to. The website for all of the podcasts can be found here: http://www.japanesepod101.com/.
