Editing audio in Audacity
Yesterday Jeremy Smith and I gave a presentation to faculty entitled, "Using blogs and web pages to raise your professional profile." This was the final presentation in this year's UCITE summer seminar series on technology and information. For the convenience of those who couldn't attend, we recorded the presentation so that you can listen to the podcast at your convenience. I tried to clean up the audio a bit, but the quality varies. It may be hard to hear some of the questions, but you should be able to follow most of it.
For those who want to learn a bit more about podcasting, here are the steps I took to create the podcast.
That's pretty much all there is to it. Just remember to only include 1 podcastable item (audio, video or pdf) per entry. This method works reasonably well for small events. For larger or higher profile events, you can hire MediaVision to record the event with higher quality recording equipment, and pass microphones around to the audience during the question and answer period. For discussions or interviews between 2-3 people, you can use the sound studio in the Freedman Center. The Freedman Center also has audio and video equipment you can borrow for use outside the center.
P.S. As it happened, I had already subscribed to this blog in iTunes. Thus, after this posting was published, the .mp3 file was automatically downloaded to my iTunes podcast directory from which I could copy it back over to my iPod in it's final format. If I make additional podcasts from this blog, they'll all be stored together.
