The Audacity tutorial was a hands-on way to teach the students the basic features of the Audacity software. The rest of the projects incorporate student choice and interest, but this one was strictly designed to focus on a variety of features and procedures of the software, so they can get started doing other projects with it. As I described it in the online course, we will use multitrack audio editing software in this course as a word processing program would be used in a writing course. All of the student projects were excellent. I used the first version that was submitted as the sample.
Here is the tutorial with a rubric and here are student samples of the finished product.
