Live and Learn on Your Time

Issue: Fall 2009

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.
