To help overcome differences in terminology used by researchers in various fields, six podcast "tutorials" focusing on various aspects of the informed brain in a digital world were released prior to the conference. This year, Joe Palca, NPR science correspondent, interviewed selected experts on aspects of the informed brain in a digital world and turned them into “Science Friday” type podcasts.
Conference attendees were notified when a new tutorial was released through the weekly conference enewsletters. Attendees are asked to listen to all podcast tutorials prior to the November conference.
