What is Soundtrap for Education?July 8, 2021
Soundtrap for Education is the platform designed for students and teachers to create and edit audio recordings. Soundtrap empowers students and teachers to explore creative sound recording in all subjects, all ages, and all ability levels! There are absolutely endless possibilities to create and edit audio, collaborate with peers, and for teachers to support students in a virtual learning environment.
What is Soundtrap for Education?
Soundtrap for Education is a cloud-based, audio recording studio that enables students and teachers to collaborate in a safe learning environment using any device, at any time, from any location. Soundtrap is super easy to use and intuitive for teachers and students who want to create professional and polished projects.
How does Soundtrap work?
Soundtrap works seamlessly across all wifi-connected devices. Students can start a project in one location (school) and continue working from another (home) because the Studio is completely cloud-powered. Soundtrap also has a collaboration feature that supports students within the same group to work together in real-time on projects. Crazy awesome, right?!
To support collaboration and stay safe, educators can create invite-only groups in a secure and protected digital environment. There, teachers can monitor student progress asynchronously, create new assignments, and communicate with students to provide feedback. Unlike Soundtrap’s Freemium (our non-educational version), Soundtrap for Education offers a walled environment to create a protected virtual space. Our team strives to exceed legal compliance requirements and to stay abreast of changes in the ever-evolving privacy law landscape. We are committed to being a trusted partner and supporting our schools to meet their own compliance obligations.
What are the best features of Soundtrap for Education?
As mentioned, safety and security are our number one priority. As such, the Soundtrap for Education platform is designed to comply with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which creates a walled garden and protected environment. But don’t worry, we have a bunch more fun features that make everyone’s life easier. Teachers can create student groups, classes, assignments, and remote lessons with just a couple of clicks. Soundtrap for Education also offers a robust resource portal. The portal has a robust library of lesson plans, tutorial videos, and external curricula resources that support teaching and learning with Soundtrap.

- Unlimited projects

Soundtrap for Education is integrated with Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Canvas, Schoology, MusicFirst, Noteflight, and Flat.io. Projects and assessments are easy to monitor and evaluate. Soundtrap is responsive and excited to grow with educators and students in the future-ready classroom.
