Editing – Lesson 3

May 3rd, 2008

In this class, we started to edit a podcast show using our interview audio files, stingers and music with Garageband. If you use a Windows OS it is possible to use Audacity to edit audio files. Our next element for the podcast show is ‘Camus News’. Find some interesting events, news or information that is related to J. F. Oberlin University and prepare a 2~3 minute report. We will add it to our podcast show next week. Thanks for your hard work!
