How to Podcast
Record - Edit - Publish/Distribute - Additional Resources


The next step is to edit the audio recordings that you or your students have created. You will use an audio editing application, an easy-to-use program in which the process for audio—cutting, pasting, deleting, rearranging—is much the same as the process of text editing in a word processing program. You can even incorporate music and images into your final podcast audio. Both Audacity and GarageBand have editing functionality.
