    • How to Create a Podcast
      Peer Coaches Career Exploration
    • Podcasting Basics
      The term podcast comes from “ipod” and “broadcasting.”
    • 4 Easy Steps to Creating a Podcast
      Use background music
      Record the voice track
      Edit or use effects
      Save as an MP3 file format
    • Tips for Creating a Better Podcast
      Appropriate length (10-20 minutes tops!)
      More than one voice
      Be mindful where you are recording (background noise can be a podcast killer!)
      Plan and organize your topic
    • Audacity is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds.
      Audacity 1.2.6 is the main release.
      Where can you use Audacity?
      In the Media Lab in Lied Library
      Install software version 1.2.6 on your computer
    • Audacity Screen
    • Get Background Music
      To import an audio file (MP3, WAV, AIFF) that you already have on your computer, go to Project > Import Audio.
    • Record the Voice Track
      Use a microphone or import recorded voice track.
      Option: Play other tracks while recording new one. Go to Edit – Preferences.
    • Start Recording!
    • Sound Test
    • Adjust the Microphone if Audio is too Low
    • Add Music or Other Audio
    • Edit or Use Effects
      Cut pieces out
      Fade the music in and out
      Note: You must select part or all of the track before you can apply edits and effects.
    • Save as an MP3
      When you are all done with your recording, save it as an MP3 so that it will play on iPods and MP3 players
      Go to File > Export as MP3
      Note: If you’ve installed Audacity on your computer, you’ll need to add the Lame MP3 encoder. Follow the instructions at Lame Installation.
    • Edit ID3 Tags
      These are tags that give title and genre information.
    • Post Podcast on the Peer Coaches Blog
      Upload your MP3 file to the Peer Coaches Blog.
      Create a link to your MP3 file. Your link will look similar to this: http://blogs.library.unlv.edu/peer_coaches/mypodcast.mp3.
      Write a title and a brief description of your podcast above or below the link so listeners will know what your podcast is about.
