I finally revised and updated the three tutorials I use to teach journalism students and professionals how to edit audio using Audacity, a free program that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Feel free to use these handouts “as is” in classrooms or training or workshops. For an introduction to audio editing, I usually use only the first handout, the “super-fast guide.” I would estimate I have used these handouts to train more than 200 journalists and students (maybe more than 300) in the past two years.

Many, many people asked me to create a single PDF version of all 15 posts in my RGMP series on this blog. It’s done. Reporter’s Guide to Multimedia Proficiency (PDF; 536 KB) This 42-page document is fully linked and usable online in most Web browsers, or in Adobe Reader, or in Preview on the Mac OS. In other words, you don’t need to print it . But if that’s what you want, go right ahead.

It’s not easy being the social media champion in the building.
Windows only: TeamPlayer allows you to use multiple mice and keyboards on a Windows based system. Under normal circumstances you can plug multiple USB mice in, but moving the two simultaneously will result in Windows struggling to decide which input to use for the single cursor on the screen. TeamPlayer is designed for a group environment where multiple people will be interacting with the same computer. Each mouse is assigned a unique colored cursor to identify it.
If you’ve been thinking of learning CSS but have become lost in the seemingly endless number of CSS tutorials that exist, you may want to read on. I’ve compiled my favorite CSS-related sites that specifically help the CSS newbie grasp the essential concepts. I cut my own CSS teeth by chewing on the information given by these sites, and I use most of the tools listed on a daily basis. I definitely don’t consider myself a CSS expert, but I would still be a confused newbie if it weren’t for the efforts of so many who have shared their knowledge and talents. It’s time to pass those on to you.
