Multimedia and Oral History Workshop

Create audio and visual presentations with your oral history recordings

This hands-on workshop will teach you how to:

  • use audio editing software to edit your interviews,
  • create audio clips with added sound effects for use in a range of settings, such as on a website, or in displays in a community centre, library or museum, and
  • use audio clips and photographs to create a visual presentation.
