I still have not gotten to the place where I can use Audacity to record both ends of a Skype conversation. But I did not want our Puffin Adverture to go un-recorded. So I gathered all 103 third grade students in the media center, dialed up Susan of Project Puffin and left the rest to the kids. I used a Belkin microphone attached to my iPod and edited the file with Audacity. It is far from perfect - but learning was done by all! Dumb me forgot to hit the record button on the iPod for the intro - duh! http://nhe.dare.k12.nc.us/parent-student/well-worth-the-travel-tim.shtml

Here is my intro created with audacity on a PC laptop with a Logitech USB mic. I had no idea I said so many "uhs..." when I talk! I tried editing some of them, most imperfectly. Enjoy! Looking forward to learning more.... Sharon Peters

Workshop 2.1.2
Recording a telephony conversation
January 21, 2007
Download mp3

Once you've recorded and posted your introduction, your next challenge is recording a telephony conversation.  There are a variety of way to do this.

If you want to record the conversation without streaming it to via the shoutcast server, you can use a number of skype 'extras',  3rd party recording programs, or telephony programs that support recording.  More info here.

If you want to record the conversation and stream it via the Shoutcast server, things get a bit more challenging. Methods vary based on operating system, sound card, and an assortment of other variables, but generally requires either a desktop USB mic or a USB headset that has two separate inputs (one for the mic and one for the earphoens).  It is doable with a 'regular' headset, but thusfar sound quality has been poorer and echo issues have been unavoidable. It is also doable using some kind of external mixer, but we have not yet experimented much with that method.  Windows users will most likely need to use Virtual Audio Cables , while Mac uses will need to use Audio Hijack Pro

This weeks task:  post a short (about 1 minute) recording of both ends of a telephony conversation using whatever method you can.
You can try to contact other interns or friends for the recording or if no one is available, you can call 'Skype lady' at 'echo123'

I am a new intern. I use an Ibook G4. I used Audacity, Lame and Stuffit for my Audio clip. Also I am a Technology Coach at a Special Education Middle School in Brooklyn, NY. I use my computer a great deal. But I am new to Webcasting and many of the other applications mentioned so far. I am eager to learn and willing to help when I can.

Hi everyone, I am buying a USB mic this week. For my first recording, I used my headset (I know, another no-no). :) Audacity worked great. I have a lot to learn, though.
