How I Use It
My students use Audacity to create and save their own music files. They use the files for background music in presentations such as Animoto and PowerPoint. When introducing students to Audacity I include a section on copyright issues.
My Take
I like Audacity. It is not too difficult for any level of student. Once students learn the program they can use it is other classes.
