Audio Guidelines

Audio is a key element for many types of e-learning content. Relevant, high-quality audio helps capture learners’ attention, contextualize information, and makes for a more captivating multimedia experience.



  • No background noises or hums (usually comes from electronics, appliances, environmental noise, and mic setup issues)
  • Little to no echo (usually comes from undampened hard surfaces in your recording space or from recording in too big a space)
  • No distracting “popping” sounds on “p” and “t” sounds (not all voices and mics have this problem, but if you do, a pop filter helps)
  • Adequate base volume that comes out of both headphone buds

Students expect you to sound like you know what you are talking about.


Good delivery includes:

  • Straightforward speaking style with very few umms” and “ahhs” Enthusiastic and energetic tone of voice.
  • Recording equipment can strip some energy from your performance –aim to deliver a little more enthusiasm than usual
  • Clear pronunciation of words and use of pauses to emphasize important points
