Course Description

In this online workshop, you’ll learn in one day what you should consider when recording and producing an audio. It is easier than you think to cut and distribute a podcast. By the way: It’s great to go on Spotify, but it is also fine to offer a single audio with a chosen topic from your doctoral thesis – and making them listen.

Please note: We'll have a training on Audacity. Please download the software in advance:
