The HSPH Information Technology technology department has several new portable audio recorders available for community use.
The M-Audio’s Microtrack II recorders are ideal for quick recordings for course websites, meeting recordings, and podcasts. The recorders are as easy or easier to use than most digital cameras and offer professional quality at a very reasonable price.
User Service’s David Shelton and Julie Lantz have produced the following “how-to” video to get users started.
