Project Description

Turning an interview into an oral history people will want to listen to.

Students will determine the theme or hook for the story, based on the oral history interview they completed and will then upload the description. Students will then use audio editing software to cut out and splice together segments of the interview out to tell the story. As the final step, students will export a final version of an oral history to SoundCloud or Audioboom and then post the link to the project gallery.
