For spring 2020, we have a theme in audio recording activities. With a plethora of audio recording technologies today, it is difficult to choose the appropriate tool. We will explore your options and compare them throughout the semester. All workshops will take place in Draper 356 B. (If you have any topics you would like us to cover, please contact the IMLC director.)
Exploring Audio Recording Options I: Audacity and other online options
Technology Level: Novice
Learn a simple way for your students to record their audio and submit them to you. You can collect students' audio files in your Box folder using Audacity at IMLC. We will also share a few simple ways to record online to receive audio data or audio links to your Canvas.
The following scheduled workshops have been replaced by IMLC Course Conversion Workshops and PreSummer Workshop Webinars.
