How I Use It
Students created podcast about an event in history. First students planned out their podcasts on paper and we rehearsed them by fake recording students. Then students created their episodes in a radio show format and then we exported the podcasts.
My Take
Audacity is easy to start using for simple recordings. Where things get difficult is doing more advanced options. Audacity does not provide a lot of support but thankfully there are YouTube videos how-tos. Another issue is you have to download another program in order to export your files out of the Audacity program, this was kind of a pain to get going.
