Recording A Data Sonification Tutorial

How to make a data sonification using R and HSS
In support of the Georgia Tech Sonification Lab, I created how-to videos explaining the process of generating a basic data sonification.

These tutorials are geared towards users of the Highcharts Sonification Studio. 
The Highcharts Sonification Studio (HSS) is a web app co-created by Georgia Tech and Highcharts, and is designed to make data sonification accessible to a wide range of users.

There is an archive of tutorial videos on the
HSS Tutorials YouTube Channel, explaining how to sonify data using the application. These videos were added to that archive. 

Applications of Sonification:
Data sonification can provide useful insight in a wide range of contexts. One example is in the classroom, where a teacher might be explaining a basic math or physics concept. Traditionally, the teacher might write the concept visually on a white board. But imagine if students could hear the math concept as well; the lesson might be augmented and further instilled in students' minds.

To demonstrate this kind of example, I recorded two sonification tutorial videos:
     1. How to create a sonification for the concept absolute value
     2. How to generate a data set in R that can be used to follow the absolute value tutorial

Creating these videos gave me a greater sense of appreciation for all the people that contribute to the world of YouTube with high-quality how-to videos. It was challenging to simultaneously record my voice while demonstrating everything I was doing on my computer. I wrote a narration script, but found that if I adhered too closely to it, my tone of voice and delivery came across slowly and robotically. Next time, I will go for a more natural vocal delivery and efficient demonstration flow!
