This student post offers instructions for recording audio to include in multimedia posts or essays.
I recorded using my iPhone’s “Voice Memo” app. Every iPhone has one, and if you don’t own an iPhone, I would assume that other smartphones have their own version of this app. Record what you need to, and then save it. I think the quickest/easiest way to then get your recording to your computer is through iMessage.
I send the file to my own cell phone number (not Heather’s), and then double click the sound file once I receive it in my computer’s iMessages (yes, you need iMessage on your computer to do it this way).
Something like this should come up, so press “Open in iTunes.” Depending on where/how you want your audio to be displayed, the next step is kind of up to you. I took the iTunes file, and uploaded it to SoundCloud. Then, I embedded the SoundCloud file in my post.
This might not be the way you want go about recording, and I totally get understand. I just kind of experimented with things, and decided to share my findings of how I ended up getting stuff to work.
If you would like to go about recording in a more professional way, I recently learned that the Connolly Media Lab in Chambers basement has very high quality microphones for recording things like voice-overs. You can go to http://www.davidson.edu/offices/its/for-faculty/connolly-media-lab/media-production and actually set up an appointment with Media Instructional Technologist, Matt Bielejeski, who can help you with podcasting for academic projects.
