Digitize your records and tapes with Audacity


MEC Training Assistant, Steph Earnshaw, writes:

Do you still use tapes in class (when you’re not using MEC!) and have you ever wished you could convert them to play from your computer or from a CD?

Perhaps your school has completely switched to CDs and you can no longer use some of your favourite tapes (and all the lessons you planned around them).

If you answered yes to either of the above then have a look this article on using a free online programme called Audacity to convert cassette tapes to MP3 files.

Audacity can also be used for making live recordings, so you could even use it to make your own podcasts.
