There are several ways in which teachers can choose to include sound in instructional programs:
  • Music

  • Audio tracks of instructor voice, just as if recorded from a lecture

  • Text to speech tracks in which text files are “spoken” in a computer voice

  • Earcons, sounds that indicate a particular operation or convey some constant information

  • Informational sound, the nature of which indicates some special meaning about data

  • Live radio may be broadcast over the Web. For example, one of the presidential debates was available in this format.
