Using Audacity to create portable lecture podcasts

Do you wish to create portable audio lectures for your students? One tool to consider is Audacity.

Audacity is a simple, free program for recording and editing audio and saving them in a small, portable format.

A great place to begin to learn Audacity would be Lynda.com. Since the UNT University System recently purchased Lynda access for everyone, there are several short courses on using Audacity to get faculty started. Log in with your EUID and PW. More on how to get to and log in to Lynda: https://itss.untsystem.edu/divisions/mrs/lynda-faqs

Faculty could then meet one on one with CIL staff for hands on assistance with Audacity. Contact Canvas@unthsc.edu for assistance.
