What is an MP 3? MP 3: MP 3 is an acronym for MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 audio layer 3. MP 3 is the file extension for MPEGaudio layer 3. Layer 3 is one of three coding schemes (layer 1, layer 2 and layer 3) for the compression of audio signals. Layer 3 uses perceptual audio coding and psychoacoustic compression to remove all superfluous information (more specifically, the redundant and irrelevant parts of a sound signal. The stuff the human ear doesn't hear anyway)
MP 3 This following information is only a guide to on how to operate an MP 3 player – each machine will have its own specific features. Before completing actual recordings for your students it may be advisable to spend some time ‘Getting to know the device’ and to make sure you are confident that when you sit with your student that the device will record and save your recordings.

What MP 3 should you buy? • There are many different make and models of MP 3’s and a wide price range. This may influence your choice, but as a minimum specification you should look for a device: • With the ability to record • With a USB connection (you may need to buy the USB as an extra) • With the facility to attach an external mic • With the facility to attached headphones
What size of memory do you need? • Reference to this site does not imply that CCEA supports the information contained on it and only serves as a guide to assist you in making an informed decision on the type of MP 3 you require. For more information you can visit the following site. • This is a question and answer from a user’s forum: I have 500 hours of mp 3 files on 8 cds that i want to load onto an mp 3 player but I can't figure out what size player I need. I know 1 gig is 16 hours of audio files, but mp 3 files are condensed. Right? Someone help please!!! Answer: The audio files are already compressed as you said they are in mp 3 format. You say they are on 8 cds. They must be highly compressed to fit that much only 8 cds. A cd has 700 MB of storage. You have 8 of them. Do the math and that equals about 5. 6 GB. If that's the case, you should probably get something that is at least 8 GB. Go with 16 GB if you plan on adding more. • http: //reviews. cnet. com/4520 -7964_7 -5134106 -3. html? tag=bg; bg_l
Prior to the day of the recordings: • Prepare your computer for the recordings by setting up folders relevant to the students – GCE / GCSE / Class 6 E, etc. You will download your recordings into these folders. • You may want to copy in your student list into the folder or divide it into sections for ‘Morning’ or ‘Afternoon’ recordings
