Starting a hot line
« on: April 25, 2018, 10:14:50 AM »
Im looking to have a hotline where alumni from our school can call in to listen to pre-recorded lectures/shiurim (around an hour each lecture).
is there any way to do this without spending tons of money?

I don't think that will fly with his crowd.
He's in Lakewood.  You have to know which community you're dealing with.

Check out http://www.midwestconferenceline.com/, I'm not sure how much it costs but I used to know someone who used it, and I'm assuming that it must have been reasonably priced.

ETA: looking at the website, it seems to be free! Check it out and see :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You can still do the phone line but you should also offer Youtube and podcasts

You'll be surprised how fast some boomers pick up these things

You're right, but then again, you're in a sheltered Midwest Chabad crowd.  I'm from Brooklyn, where the powers that be declare all technology 'traif'. 
Until they notice that a car moves faster than a horse and you can speak to someone across the world on a telephone and that it's pretty convenient to carry a phone with you instead of only attached to a wall.
