I would suggest avoiding this, as Audacity is not (necessarily) a tool
for a novice. As can be seen from hpr1298 :: Recording for HPR using
Audacity (http://hackerpublicradio.org/eps.php?id=1298) there are a lot
of things that can go wrong.

I personally never ever record in Audacity ever. The only editing I do
in Audacity is to truncate silence. It would be far less daunting to
have them record on a device that they already own, like an
android/iphone/sanza clip or via the call in line.

That said Jezra has a valid point, we should have a Audacity help video
screen cast - Anyone want to volunteer ?
