enRUe: Collaborative Audio Editor made by CJRU!21 March 2016 / by Jacky Harrison (author), Nav Sivabalaviknarajah (author)
Using the enRUe app, citizen journalists can make and load audio collaboratively, see each other's edits, and comment back and forth in real time - like Google Docs, but with audio.
Imagine posting a call for personal stories from a flood, a city services strike or from a major arts event. Dozens- even hundreds- of citizen journalists can answer the assignment, report and collect sound, using their phones to record audio.
In the old days, all these reporters would have to go back to their community radio station or studio to load the audio into an editor. To work on audio with co-producers, the only options were face to face meetings or a fileshare service, uploading version by pain-staking version.
If you are interested in testing enRUe with us, the testing phase is open from now until April please contact Jacky Tuinstra firstname.lastname@example.org
Special thanks to the Community Radio Fund of Canada for making this project possible.
