Sure, Computers Can Teach Tech Skills, But Can They Teach Soft Skills Like Public Speaking? New Online Public Speaking Course Claims It Can

March 7, 2018

NEW YORK–Media Training Worldwide, a New York-based media and presentation training firm, announced today the release of  what is believed to be the longest and most comprehensive online public speaking class ever. “2018 Complete Public Speaking Masterclass For Every Occasion” has just been released on the Udemy.com online learning platform. The 29.5 hour course covers nearly every aspect of public speaking, presentation skills and professional presentation activities.

Critics have long maintained that online learning was well-suited for hard skills like computer programming, but was ill-suited for certain soft skills, like public speaking.

“Most online public speaking classes in the past, including some of my own, didn’t work well because there was no easy way for students to upload videos of themselves speaking to get a critique from a teacher. Plus, courses were too short and superficial. With my new course, both problems are solved, as students are encouraged to record themselves on cell-phones and upload their speeches for a professional critique,” said TJ Walker, host and producer of the course.

The course retails for $199.00 but is available for a short time on sale for $9.95 here https://www.udemy.com/the-complete-public-speaking-masterclass-for-every-occasion/?couponCode=TJWALKER10
