Lee Clontz, Shannon O'Daniel and I have helped produce this online Coursera course "Introduction to Digital Sound Design," taught by the Emory Music professor Steve Everett. It's a four week course that starts this coming Monday. It's free, involves very little work aside from watching about two hours of video per week, and nearly 35,000 people from around the world have signed up for it. If you have any interest in how to record and process sound in a computer environment or want to know more about contemporary sound composition practices, check this course out. Professor Everett covers the basic principles of sound and then does a deep dive into audio synthesis and how to use the free audio programs Audacity and Soundation. This course represents Emory's first big leap into online education, and it's been a real pleasure to work on it.
