Downloading and installing Audacity
Download Audacity from: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
(to export podcasts as MP3, you also need to download the free LAME MP3 encoder - follow the instructions to download the zip file. Unzip the DLL file to anywhere on your computer (see short video). The first time you use the "Export as MP3" command, Audacity will ask you where lame_enc.dll is saved.)
Alternatively, the files you need are in the common drive: H:\eLearn\Audacity.
