Developing Audio open educational resources for English language teaching

Audio resources are a critical component for developing listening skills in learners, which conventional print based resources (text books) are unable to provide. IT for Change, in collaboration with RIESI, designed and conducted one-day workshops for the participants of different batches of the Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELT) program. The aim of these workshops was to help teachers

  1. explore new digital tools and applications for language learning
  2. explore Audacity FOSS application to create effective language resources; record and edit audio, make audio resources by combining multiple audio files
  3. explore how audio can be used in a language lesson.
  4. become oriented to the philosophy of creation of resources along with accessing and using existing audio resources.
  5. publishing developed resources to an OER repository

Information about these workshops is available here.

Audio OER published by participants is available here
