For years the best free software for multitrack audio editing has been Audacity, which only works on PC or Mac computers, now there is a new player on the block which works on Chromebooks as well as on PC and Macs. Soundtrap.com is an online multitrack audio editor.
I used Soundtrap.com for my fall show in which we did a voice over music quoting lines from The Breakfast Club. It only took me about 5 minutes to get the project done. This would be a great for to use for students to create podcasts. At my school, students create This I Beleive project based on the NPR broadcast. This would be the perfect tool to use with it.
