1. Record and edit your audio recording in Audacity. Don’t forget to Save often! It might be helpful for you to save your project onto your desktop so you can find it easily.
2. When you are finished with your project, go to this website to download Lame Encoder. You will need Lame to export your project as an MP3. Follow the instructions on the page to install the program onto your computer. You will only need to do this once.

3. Once you have downloaded Lame, go back to Audacity.

4. In Audacity, go to File. Click on Export As MP3.

5. You will get a pop-up window. Fill in the Title, Artist, Album, and Genre.

6. Open up iTunes. Go to File, and click on Import. Find your MP3, which should be on your desktop. When you have found your project, click Choose. Your project is now in your iTunes library.

7. Now you will want to get an URL for your podcast. Go to OurMedia. Login with the username and password your teachers give you.

8. In the My Controls panel, click on Publish my media.
