We’re Flipping The VO2GoGo Classroom

Hey, there!

We’ve had a lot of fun and success over the last decade or so in presenting voiceover training via the VO2GoGo classrooms, here in LA, online and all around the world, and we’re always looking for ways to improve our content and our processes.

We think we’ve found a really exciting way to do both.

Just to be sure, I went to an expert, one of my oldest and dearest friends, Dr. Robert Pondillo, professor of Mass Communication at Middle Tennessee State University, to discuss “flipping the classroom.” Sounds dangerous, but it’s not – here’s what it is.

I had a chance to Skype with Dr. Pondillo recently, and he and I discussed the idea of flipping the classroom, what it means, what goes into it, and what’s in it for you, the VO artist trying to make a more successful career:

Over at DailyGenius.com, there’s a great article on how to flip a class, and we’ll be following that example very closely. Here’s a graphic that shows the 6 steps we’ll be taking (just click on it to make it larger):

We think that flipping the VO2GoGo classroom will offer a great opportunity for our student/clients, and especially our Pro members, to acquire the information in the classes in the comfort of their own homes or offices, at their leisure and on their schedule, and it will make the live workshops we’ll still have monthly more effective at helping them put all that information to work.

You’ll be seeing some formatting changes here on the site, and some new processes being put into place, over the next few months as we make these upgrades to the curriculum.

We’re excited and we hope you are as well. If you’re not yet signed up for the VO2GoGo curriculum, head over to our Pro page and join us in creating a successful, satifying and profitable VO career.

And let us know in the comments below if you have any experiences to share with other flipped classrooms you’ve been in.

Hope this helps.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
