UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your educational goals. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned many of our courses to an online or live online format. Live Online classes are fully online with live virtual class meetings each week using our Zoom conferencing system. Online classes will have pre-recorded lectures each week and guided assignments from the instructor. We will resume in-person classes when it is deemed safe to do so.

Whether you are ready to start your own podcast or you are an existing podcaster interested in monetizing your content, you won't want to miss this highly interactive, hands-on opportunity to be part of this rapidly growing content medium.
