2 Audacity A Quick Overview

3 Recording Audacity allows you to record your voice easily using a microphone or sound field connected to your computer. Basic Recording Open Audacity 1.

4 adjust the microphone volume. d. Press STOP when you have the correct levels. e. Delete your practice track 3. Click RECORD. 4. If you want to pause while recording click Pause. To continue recording on the same track, click PAUSE. 5. When you are done recording, click STOP.

5 Exporting as an.mp3 To create an MP3 file from Audacity, you must use the File > Export as MP3 option instead of just File > Save. You must export the recording to MP3 before you can upload it to Blackboard. An MP3 file has good audio quality and small file sizes which make it great for most of our purposes including posting to the web or Blackboard 1. Click File and choose Export as MP3 2. Choose a destination and a name for your file. 3. Click OK. 4. For the format, choose ID3v1 (more compatible). 5. Enter the recording information (optional). 6. Click OK (note - You must click OK. In some versions of Audacity, clicking Cancel on this screen causes problems with the export). 7. Close Audacity (you don t need to save your audio in audacity format unless you want a highquality back-up copy or need to do further editing).

Blackboard does not edit the file for you, so be sure that you listen to and preview your entire file before uploading it for students to access. 1. Login to your BlackBoard Course 2. Navigate to the page you would like your students to use to access your Podcast. (i.e. Documents, Assignments, etc) Click Edit View in the upper right corner. 3. Drop-down to Podcast and Go. 4. Section number 1: Fill out requested information. See the example to the right. Section Number 2: Type in a name for the file you want to import into your podcast. Then fill in a short description (date would be great) and then the author s name. Click the Browse button and navigate to the.mp3 file you exported and saved earlier. 5. Click the Submit Button.

7 Modify your Podcast To add additional MP3 files to your podcast or to remove an existing MP3 file from your podcast, you must use the Modify button next to your podcast link from the Blackboard Control Panel. 1. Click on Edit View in the upper right hand corner of the page that contains the podcast. 2. Click Modify 3. Check Add new Item and follow the same steps as above. 4. To remove an item, click on the Delete box next to the item and then the submit button in the lower right hand corner.
