MarCom: Interactive Launches Modern Mediasphere Training
MarCom:Interactive, an Internet communications and emerging media consultancy, announced the launch of the industry's first-ever hands-on training courses to educate communications professionals on the "Modern Mediasphere" of blogs, RSS, social networks and more.
The Modern Mediasphere Training classes, which will be held in 11 U.S. cities, are designed to get modern communicators up to speed on the latest media tools and technologies. The hands-on, instructor-led lasses range from "jump start" two-hour morning or afternoon sessions, to immersive multi-week courses on how to use blogs, RSS and other modern media as effective communications channels.
"There is a lot information 'out there' about these new tools, but there is also a great need to help communicators get involved and start using modern media in real, practical ways that get results," said Linda Zimmer, CEO of MarCom:Interactive. "Our new training program is an extension of the public and private seminars we are already doing, and will allow us to work more closely with a wider range of communicators on creation, implementation and management of these exciting new mediums."
Most classes are taught at an introductory level though advanced course are also available. Classrooms are equipped with computers and high-speed Internet access, and participants receive written as well as electronic guides and other information for continued learning.
Current topics include "How to Setup, Publish and Manage a Blog" and "RSS: Getting Your Content to Your Audiences." 2006 classes will be held at the following locations:
