If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.


Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.


Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

Webcasting on a Shoestring


Historically it has been quite expensive to produce and host a live radio program that is broadcasted for a global audience. Today, it is possible to share a live webcast over the Internet using a laptop computer, a high speed Internet connection, and a combination of free software programs as well as one $30 commercial software program. In this session I will explain and demonstrate how to use a Mac laptop, a USB cell phone data card, a web browser and the website Ustream.tv, Skype software, Audio Hijack Pro software (the $30 program) as well as Camtwist to webcast for a global audience on a shoestring budget. We will also explore how to use the free applications Ustream, Qik, and Mogulus to webcast live, as well as the live-blogging tool CoverItLive which can be integrated with any of these webcasting tools. Access referenced links on http://handouts.wesfryer.com/shoestring-webcasting.


This session was shared at the Oklahoma Distance Learning Association's annual conference on Thursday, November 13 from 1:30 - 2:20 pm. A Ustream.tv recorded archive of this session is available. Presentation slides are available as a PDF. (14.8 MB)
