1 Adding Audio Files 1

2  You can easily add audio files to your course.  These can be files from the web that you link to, or files that you prepare and upload yourself.  To add your files, follow the same procedures that you used to add your Syllabus, or other text, or a video. Upload to the files folder and then link from the course home page. 2

3  Once you start thinking of using or creating audio files, you have the possibility of creating Podcasts.  What is a “Podcast”? According to Wikipedia, “A podcast is a series of digital-media files which are distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers.”digital-media filesInternet syndicationfeedsportable media playerscomputers Harry C.

4  Click on Add a Resource  Click on Link to a File or Website  Enter the Title (name you assign)  Enter the web site address  I recommend that you make it the same window, and check “Keep page navigation visible on the same page “.  That’s it! 4

5  If you wish to create your own podcast, a useful software to know about, is “Audacity”, (a free audio editor and recorder).  For alternatives, see Topic labelled “Audio” in the Technology in the Classroom site (below this Moodle site) in the Moodle class directory 5
