Audacity on ESEC lab computers

Audacity, the software that you can use for creating podcasts, has been installed on the computers in the ESEC computer lab, which is in Rhodes 163.
If you want to download Audacity to your own computer, you can do so at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/. We'll view the "Mixing with Audacity" YouTube tutorial in class. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1IqWoWu8gU. You may also be interested Fabian Brown's "Audacity Tutorial" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5K1ZsoO1sU or another video also titled "audacity tutorial" by MikeyK777 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD8tgM0Xo9M (you have to love a kid with the self-confidence to crackle candy wrappers while he records a video).
Your other option for creating podcasts is Gabcast at, which you only need a phone to use. You can use the account I set up for the class; the class account is Channel 8538 I will give announce the password in class. If you're feeling slightly more adventurous, you can try setting up your own Gabcast account and channel at http://www.gabcast.com/. You can view a YouTube tutorial by Matthew Gordon, "Getting Started with Gabcast," at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWrxGSPEi8U .
