Have you ever heard of a webisode? It’s a new term that is on the rise in the world of computers. Chances are, if you already know about it, you either heard it on the Internet or maybe you even heard someone talking about it on TV or the radio. So, let’s learn a little more about this up and coming technology, shall we?!
Basically, a webisode is exactly what it sounds like. It is a episodic video show that telecasts on the Web. They are very similar to television show episodes, but they are published and produced just for the Internet. Webisodes come in different formats as well. Sometimes an actor or even a comedian will create a webisode for themselves and air it on the Web, just for some extra recognition. Other webisodes are made solely for the purpose of promoting a new product or movie.
Webisodes are generally short, as in five or fewer episodes, while others are much longer. This term has been around, believe it or not, since 1999. The first known outing of the word was for the promotion of an online superhero series created by Jesse Stagg and Steven Salim. Stan Lee Media was coined for the creation of that particular webisode.
You can find tons of webisodes online right now. Just keep your eyes open for them. They’re the next big thing. Pretty cool, huh?!
