Audacity is an audio creation and editing program.  It can be used to create audio files that can be used for presentations, ringtones, background audio, and much more.  It is free.  The following video will walk you through the basic steps needed to create audio files that will enhance the presentations you will be creating in the future.

Assessment Ideas for Audacity
Your teacher may have a specific project where you apply Audacity.  If this is the case, follow his or her directions.  If not, practice using Audacity doing the following:
  • Record an audio of you and your friends sharing memories.  Save the file as a .wav or .mp3 and share it with them.
  • Create a podcast that you update at least once a week.
  • Create an audio file that supports a project one of your teachers would like for a class project.
  • Use one of your audio files as a voice-over for a video project.
