Split Up Long Audio Files With Audacity

microphone-162205_640One element of eLearning is inserting narrated audio files into an authoring tool for a course you’re working on. Often the narrator will send along one long audio file – say 30 minutes – that must be divided up over several slides. This can feel daunting, but Audacity®, which is free, open source, cross-platform software for recording and editing sounds, can simplify this task.

I’ve created a tutorial that explains how to go about this. If you watch it, I’d love to hear your feedback.

Oh, and I’d like to take a minute for a Shout Out to pixabay. They have such wonderful free images. That’s where I found this “Mic Guy”…and so many other cool images.
