How do I add Audio to my assignment?

To add audio to one of your assignments, choose ‘Insert’ on your toolbar or click down on your activity.  Click, or Click and Drag The Tools menu will pop up. 

Select 'Audio' from the right column (represented by a microphone icon).

Draw a box on the assignment where you would like an Audio icon to render and you’ll see this appear:

This is the same icon your students will see on their assignment. 

This message will pop up on your screen once you draw the audio box:

Your first option is to record your own audio. To begin recording, click the red circle. You can record for up to 5 minutes! To stop recording, click on the grey square. Click the “Attach to the Worksheet” button at the bottom of the window when you’re done. Your audio recording will now play when students click on the Audio icon in their assignment. 

This is what students see when they click on the audio icon:

If you want to listen to your audio, select Preview from the View menu and click on the Audio icon. If you want to re-do your recording, exit the Preview, delete your Audio icon from your worksheet, and start over.

Your second option is to upload your own audio from your computer. To do so, click the “Upload” tab to the right of “Record" tab. 

You will see this box:

Select the audio file you would like to upload and you will see the title of the file appear where it says, “Upload an audio file.” Once you see your file’s name, the option to “Attach to the Worksheet” will also reappear. Click this option to add your audio file to your worksheet and then you are done!

Follow the same steps mentioned above to preview your audio and see what your students see. 

NOTE: When uploading your own audio, there is a file limit of 10 MB.
