Today, few will disagree that we live in a complex digital world. Technology is developed, implemented, and obsolete in the blink of an eye. Many of these technologies are developed with the objective of making existing technology more efficient and in turn, our lives more productive. One of these new technologies that’s changing the way we live and learn is podcasting.
A “Podcast” or “Podcasting” is a popular multimedia format that allows digital audio and video files to be shared via the Internet for playback on either a personal computer or personal media player like the Apple iPod.
Whether you want to learn about the benefits of a product, listen to a motivational speaker, or take a CE class you’ve been wanting to attend, you’re able do all of this via podcasting.
The benefits of a podcast are numerous for both businesses and consumers. Podcasts offer consumers the ability to learn what they want, when they want. Whether you want to learn about the benefits of a product, listen to a motivational speaker, or take a CE class you’ve been wanting to attend, you’re able do all of this via podcasting. Think about it, you’re driving to work, on your way to an important meeting, or working on your laptop in bed, each offers the opportunity to listen or watch a podcast.
Podcasts also benefit businesses in many ways. Meetings can be recorded and converted to podcasts for those who could not attend. Because podcasts are easily accessible through multiple mediums, podcasts are also an excellent avenue for businesses to inform and educate consumers on their products.
In addition, once the consumer has the podcast, it can be easily passed on to their peers at no additional cost to the business or consumer. Podcasts can be accessed via many different Web sites. One popular site for dental professionals to obtain objective practice and product information is www.DentalPodcastCenter.com. On average, over four thousand dental professionals visit the site each month to learn about the latest and greatest in dentistry from other respected dental professionals featured on the site.
Podcasting is improving our ability to live and learn. For those of us on the go and with very little free time, www.DentalPodcastCenter.com is an excellent source of dental industry news and information.
