Friday’s Visit to ITT – Great Venue Location

Written by angelo on May 4, 2008 – 12:24 am -

Mary, Jason, Gabe and I (Angelo) visited ITT this past Friday to check out the facilities. I must say, ITT has gone above and beyond to help us put on PodCamp Ohio this year. We cannot thank them enough for the opportunity!

Our first task was to assess the rooms available. One of the rooms available to us the entire day is perfect for our First Aid room for podcasters to setup their computers and practice podcasting. While taking pictures of the other rooms, we discovered 5 break out rooms that will be available to us as well. These are perfect rooms for those who may want to have a discussion or record interviews outside of the hallways. We also took some pictures of the lounge area, which will have vending machines and plenty of seating for socializing and networking.

We also inquired about Internet access for the event. Each projector has an ethernet port available for the presenter. In addition, there will be wireless access available as well. The wireless access will most likely be made available via a guest account. We will get more details for this when we’re closer to the event.

(Columbus, Ohio) Everyone from executives in the marketing, business, design and technology industries to house wives and students will gather at ITT Technical Institute in Hilliard on Saturday, June 28, 2008 for PodCamp Ohio. Anyone interested in learning about, experiencing or collaborating on topics such as podcasting, blogging, new media and social networking will learn from and interact with the experts at this day-long “unconference.”

“It’s all about learning, getting hands on with new media and spending time with folks that make up your online community,” said Angelo Mandato, coordinator of PodCamp Ohio. “By attending PodCamp Ohio, members of the blogging, podcasting, marketing, academic, and business communities will lead the charge toward embracing and effectively utilizing new and social media in our area,” he added.

PodCamp Ohio offers a unique opportunity for attendees to learn, share or grow their new media skills. They can attend informal sessions, created and driven by participants, about podcasts, blogs, digital music, web video and related aspects of new, Internet-based media. The format allows both beginner and expert media producers, as well as listeners, watchers and readers, to participate, discuss and network.

PodCamp Ohio is presented by ITT Technical Institute in Hilliard, OH (Columbus metro). The event is open to the public, but registration is required. To sign up or learn more, visit 2008.podcampohio.com. Experience with podcasting or blogging are not requirements to participate; professionals of any industry, hobbyists and students are encouraged to attend.
