'The Webcast Academy' is a hands on, collaborative training center for people interested in learning how to produce and host live, interactive webcasts. To participate as a listener, guest, or webcaster, please join our Yahoo Group, register on this site, check out the "How to Get Started at the Academy" post and join us during our upcoming webcasts.
A Live Interactive Webcast is basically like a global radio show that is produced and accessed via the internet. A discussion between two or more more parties using a telephony program is streamed live so that many listeners can tune in and, when desired, call in to the show host and participate in the discussion. These shows usually include the use of a text chat room so that listeners and discussion pariticapants can communicate with each other during the show. Telephony + Two-way audio capturing + live streaming = Live Interactive Webcasting.
All are welcome to participate as...
