Technical Note: I record audio files in class with an Olympus DM-1 digital voice recorder, transfer them via USB to my laptop, edit them in Nero Wave Editor and convert them to 16 kbps mp3 files with Nero's mp3 Pro encoding feature. Then they are uploaded to a folder in this wiki and the final step is to provide hyperlinks on this page.
