How to use audacity in the classroom

How to use Audacity in the Classroom

I was asked to share Audacity and how to use it in your classrooms. I use Audacity in my classroom on a regular basis. I think it’s a great teaching tool.

Today, I hope you will learn how to record, edit, and share sound files.

First, for those unfamiliar with Audacity, it is an open-source recording program that is quite powerful.


Audacity can be used to

Audacity can be used to:

  • Record live audio

  • Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CD’s

  • Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV, or AIFF sound files

  • Cut, copy, splice or mix sounds together

  • Change the speed or pitch of a recording

  • And more

Using audacity in the classroom

Using Audacity in the Classroom

  • Podcasting: Powerful and Practical:

    Audacity is the perfect tool for podcasting


Multitrack recording

Multitrack Recording

  • In a Intermediate grade general music class, you might use Audacity to record multiple tracks for a video. In this example, students begin by heading to http://www.blobprod.com and use the online mixer to mix their sounds, using the soundbank provided. They record this in Audacity, then record their own voices reading a story they’ve written. Using the editing tools in Audacity, students then put the two parts together, and they’ve now created their own soundtrack to use with their Animoto video, which they’ve created using their own pictures. Neat project!
