Main Article Content

Kate Holterhoff


There has never been a better time to create audio content than the present. Not only do most personal computers come with audio software like GarageBand (OSX) and VoiceRecorder (Win) already installed, free programs such as Audacity and LMMS can be readily downloaded online. This has opened up a variety of new project opportunities for instructors eager to incorporate digital humanities concepts and ideas into their classrooms. In multimodal communication courses foregrounding history, archive, and visual culture studies, the form of the audio guide offers a useful medium for students to create inventive and theoretically rigorous projects.
