I used this opportunity to tell you about myself. I used Audacity to edit. I can't believe how nervous I was during the recording!

Bee's intro

Webcast Academy - Sat, 2007-07-28 01:06

My name's  Barbara Dieu, or Bee as people call me online. I teach English as a Foreign Language at the Franco-Brazilian school in Sao Paulo, Brazil and I am recording this using Audacity. The music that you hear at the beginning comes from Gilberto Gil's site: http://gilbertogil.com.br . He is our Minister of Culture and also a famous musician, a pioneer at publishing songs under the Creative Commons License and on his site called (Banda Larga) Broadband you can find a series of remixes based on his songs so you can create your own re-mix or mash-up like I'm doing now.

update 28/07: I have added an explanation of the recording process here. 

update 29/07:  I have added the outdated code here for the flash button instead of uploading the mp3 file again to the audio content area so as not to encumber the webcastacademy server. I had to switch this text from WYSIWYG to text editor so as to place the code. hmmm, the button appears but the sound does not come out. Checking the html code. Still does not play...argh. Now , where is it that I had found that code? Ok..found my mistake..I added an extra pair of inverted  commas after the src, argh.­

Recording a Telephony Call - BrazilBridges - All About Brigadeiros

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2007-07-27 22:34

I feel excited about the accomplishments so far, mainly recording a telephony call. In the past, there were always technical issues with the computers I was working at, I never got to record both ends. There was always one voice missing!

This time, yes. A big YES! WOOHOO! OK, the bad part? It's always terrible to listen to ourselves and I realized how LOUD I am. Had to edit the whole conversation because of my so loud tone!

CarlaArena_Recording a Telephony Call - All about Brigadeiros

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2007-07-27 22:10

Dear all,

This time is full of WooHoo moments! Today I had a great time recording a skype call with Erika. I checked my settings before, opened the volume control, opened audacity and then the Audio Repeater (Yes! Don't forget it!). Then, I could see all the waves going on my screen from my side and Erika's end. Perfect! And the conversation? Even more fun!

Erika Cruvinel Introduction

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2007-07-27 18:48

Hello, I am Erika Cruvinel, a brazilian teacher who has been trying to learn how to stream for over a year. I joined the Webcast Academy last year, but the most I could do was to record one end of a Skype call. So please give me one more chance to learn more about webcasting. I promise to try harder this time!

I used Audacity for the first time - not too hard once you know what all the icons mean. I tend to be a hands on person who tries things out and then reads. Speaking of reading - I had taken a holiday from reading blogs - I was water-blogged - couldn't take anything in anymore. But this has revitalized me and I have started reading again. I am very excited about this course and this group of people. Now - to find everyone's blogs and start more reading.

Telephony Recording

Webcast Academy - Fri, 2007-07-27 08:09
A very boring recording. A good example of someone (me) not putting her mic in the right place to avoid breathing sounds. I'm sure Jeff will cover this topic (I am a prime offender) in a later lesson.

This time is for good. One year ago I started, one year later I'm here for this immersion in the Webcasting world. 

I've already recorded my intro with Audacity and have been playing around with recording. Finally, I was successful, but I want to record something exciting with the gang, Cris, Mary, Erika.

Getting lost

Webcast Academy - Thu, 2007-07-26 16:14

Hi everyone from the 2.2 group. I'm sorry I couldn't attend (was busy dreaming of sugarplums :-)), and I saw on the list that there are a number of people I already know!

I'm Illya from the USA, and would like to continue this introduction with audio once I figure it out. 

At the moment I'm busy getting lost in the book and all the links. I can't seem to find the screencast (camtasia?) from Jeff showing how you can record using Audacity. I know I saw it there somewhere. Could anyone help me out?  I also think I'm supposed to get a mentor.

First you add 'webcastacademy' as a skype contact.  You will then be added to the skype chat within a few hours.
Then take a look at this screencast for some pointers.
