What is a podcast?

A podcast is a digital audio file made available on the internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, so that it can be listened to anywhere at any time on any device. A podcast is typically available as a series of episodes, with new instalments being sent automatically to subscribers.

Are you new to the world of podcasts? Not sure how to download or listen to them on your smart phone or tablet?

Well, if you have an iPhone or iPad, simply follow the steps provided by Cancer Council NSW.

If you have an Android phone or tablet, download a podcast app (e.g. Pocket Casts or CastBox) and follow the prompts to find and download podcasts.

Podcasts can also be listened to directly via the website.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is an online seminar you can watch on your computer or mobile device. Webinars enable many people – in different geographic locations – to share a common experience in real-time and to interact via a chat box with the presenters and participants.

The webinars are recorded enabling you to view the webinar at your convenience after the live event. All registrants are emailed a link to the webinar recording, a copy of the power point and a list of resources for future reference.

You can also watch previous webinars even if you did not participate when they were presented. To do this you will also need to register.
