MORE THAN 10 YEARS after I shared my first MP3 clip to readers, I've started culling gigabytes of spoken content into places where the major listening networks can find the audio clips and share them. I'm now experimenting with pulling some of my most recent content from my station on Anchor.fm into a easy to remember subscription called Bernie on Anchor. Continue reading

WHILE PAGING THROUGH several dozen creative media journals, I discovered several unfamiliar logos woven into some very memorable content. And I recorded a half hour of ideas that were sparked by student work. Continue reading

PEOPLE HAVE CHANGED the way they interact with me electronically. Ten years ago, "ping me on Twitter" but now that has faded away. Continue reading

WE HAVE AN Echo Dot in the house and she is really getting to know what we like to hear by listening to us ask her things. This isn't anything unusual but for visitors who never have seen Amazon's Alexa adding to human conversations, it can be a little unnerving. Continue reading

WE HAVE EXPERIMENTED WITH MICROCASTING for the past 12 years on the Clonmel campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology. With the help of a dozen students, I'm getting an inside view of what microcasting means. Continue reading

I NEEDED A laptop to effectively manage three fourth year students and after a two year wait, I finally got a Dell Latitude 5480 that should serve me well for my final 900 days as a third level lecturer. This is the first machine I've used without having admin rights and that's a bit awkward. Continue reading

SOME OF MY BEST STUDENTS want to write with pens on paper. I try to balance their needs with the easy cross-checking that follows well-oiled digital media in the classroom. Continue reading

EVERY TWO WEEKS, I cobble together a five minute clip comprised of 15-20 voices using the Anchor.fm ecosystem. This week, I decided to give top mention to a question arising in my mind: Do we hear a person's color (or creed or sociodemographic background) when we hear their voice? It's part of a clip hashtagged #voicesofanchor below. Continue reading

I'M GLAD THAT I HAVE a relatively quiet weekend ahead because it's going to take a few hours for me to decompress several significant outcomes related to a field trip our creative media students completed in Dublin. The five students got specialised attention while inside Workday and Google. We got tailored content and special treatment. Continue reading

WE GET AN INSIDE VIEW of Google's accelerated mobile publishing along with deep insights about a current Adwords programme when visiting Google's Dublin offices with a small crew of creative media students from the Limerick Institute of Technology. I appreciate the work Conor McGann is doing to create an incisive session. Continue reading

WE'RE TAKING A SMALL CREW of creative students into the Dublin offices of Workday and Google on the 17th of November. These sorts of field trips always pay dividends for both academic staff and our students. Continue reading

AFTER MORE THAN a year and a half listening and talking on Anchor.fm, I can most assuredly say I've encountered dozens of very contented people using Anchor radio. It's a small community (probably no more than 550 active members) but there's enough diversity to make my Anchor experience the equivalent of a multicultural audio scrapbook. Continue reading

When the speakerphone is on in the conference room, do you talk differently? It's pretty common. Continue reading

ONE OF MY MOST favourite activities is walking along the banks of the River Suir (pictured) and I'm happy to watch Claire Butler create clever content that will promote the River Suir Blueway. Claire is in her final year of the Creative Multimedia degree programme in the Limerick Institute of Technology and her work will help an international audience discover some of the special places I have enjoyed while living in County Tipperary Continue reading

AS WE START another day-long workshop with Ireland's Youth Media Team, I am burrowing behind the pages and tweaking some code on the Wordpress site. After seeing some of the updated features pushed out by the Wordpress developers, I can see a need to train our young creatives in leveraging some of the text and image widgets. Continue reading

ALONG WITH MORE THAN 50 students, I'm diving deep into several projects that I'm tracking with Trello's boards. And I'm complementing the tick-off lists with audio and video collateral. Continue reading

I'M TRYING TO alert college students to the importance of carying around mental outlines of speeches so they're never without a coherent presentation if they're door-stepped by prospective employers. One of the best tactics for this important life skill is keeping notes close to hand, either in little journals or in mobile apps. Continue reading

I LIKE HOW ZAPIER can automate the checklists we use on Trello cards with our creative media programme. Zaps can automatically find a checklist item on a Trello card, then mark it as complete. Zaps can automatically add checklist items to a Trello card. Continue reading

I SPEND PART of many weekends rewinding social audio conversations and today I've made 20 "shout-outs" to regulars who stop by my watering hole at Anchor.fm/topgold. I've also mentioned a dozen people who didn't get a shout-out but who are part of my online audio conversations. Continue reading

ONE NOTE'S AUDIO quality surprises me when I use a lapel microphone to offer feedback to students as they complete assignments in our third level modules. I've enclosed a short sample at the bottom of this post. Continue reading

BE ABLE TO CREATE. That's a mantra I've long respected since joining forces with a small cluster of colleagues in the sunny southeast of Ireland. And over the years, I've watched a collaborative creative framework evolve with capable tools to match. Continue reading
