Audio content is an effective but underused teaching and learning resource. Using Audacity, an open source sound editor, instructors can quickly and easily create audio content for use in HuskyCT, PowerPoint, and even Podcasting. Creating audio files provides a valuable resource for students looking for extra reference or more in-depth explanation. Providing content in forms other than text is often more efficient and effective, but it also has benefits for students who may learn better from what they hear than what they read.
The following slideshow was presented at a recent IRC workshop given by Janet Jordan and Steve McDermott on February 25th, 2009 highlighting creation and usage of audio files in an educational setting.
