In addition to ePortfolios being able to host audio files, you can also record an audio file directly from your ePortfolio.
After adding a media module, select Record Audio (1) from the list of media options.
If this is your first time recording audio from an ePortfolio, you will see a prompt in the upper left corner of your web browser to block or allow access to your microphone (2). Select 'Allow' to grant your ePortfolio access to your microphone.
When you are ready to start recording, click Record Audio (3) in the lower right corner of the window.
During recording, you will see visual queues to let you know audio is being recorded as well as options to mute and stop the recording.
- The Mute toggle (4) in the upper right corner of the window window will allow you to turn your microphone off or on from the recording window.
- The Audio detection icon (5) in the upper right will pulse to show you when audio is detected during recording.
- You will see Archiving on (6) to let you know that your recording is being saved.
- When you are finished recording, press Stop (7) to finalize the file.
Next, you will be able to manage your recordings before uploading the files to your ePortfolio.
A single media module can support multiple recorded files, if you would like to add additional recordings, you can select Add more files (8) to create another recording.
If you would like to remove a recording, you can do so individually by selecting the 'x' next to the unwanted recording or select Remove all (9) to remove all your recordings. Please note, 'Remove All' will only delete recordings that have not been uploaded to your ePortfolio. Previously uploaded recordings will remain intact.
When you have all your files ready for the module, select Upload (10) to save the files to your ePortfolio.
You will then transition back to your ePortfolio and see a message on your module that your recording is being processed.
When your files are done being processed, you will be able to play the audio from the module.
