Demonstrate these competencies – Work with Audacity or similar software to produce media with a clear message. Use a recorder to capture sound at appropriate volume levels with minimal distortion and background noise. Edit sound in layers, balancing the volume levels of voice and music. Cut parts of a recording. Add fade effects. Adjust volume and remove noise. Find Creative Commons licensed music and credit sources. Export an MP3 file, upload to SoundCloud, and embed on a web page.
Badge earners create a voice recording and produce a 45-90-second program with a musical soundtrack. They capture an image of an editing screen to show how the project was assembled and then write a reflection on their successes, challenges, and next steps. The badge is offered in connection with Notre Dame's Remix and ePortfolio initiatives.
