Radio and Online Production and Broadcasting is an industry based course, built around the broadcast of a weekly one hour program live on community radio and creating content for the related website page. The web page will incorporate podcasts of segments which have been broadcast on digital radio, and streamed online. The online presence includes Twitter and Facebook accounts. The first 4 weeks are an intensive course, covering the theoretical and practical skills needed for radio broadcasting and online publishing. For producing and presenting a live radio program these include writing, technical production, presentation, interviewing, program planning and research and portable recording on location. For website maintenance students learn online production skills, writing for internet and strategies and protocols for social media. Legal requirements, audience awareness and digital audio production for all platforms are also covered. After the intensive segment of the course, weekly radio shows are presented in smaller teams for the rest of the semester. Students work under tutor supervision to learn and fill all the roles required including producer, presenter, interviewer, panel operator and online producer. Segments for broadcast will also be pre-produced.
