MY TRIAL: I recorded a checklist for teachers doing the Cultura EDtech online course.
The second site for audio recordings is RECORDR
You can record VIDEO or AUDIO only, then grab the embed code and publish it. You can also tweet your recording with a simple click.
How can I use these sites with students?
- You can leave messages for your students in class blogs.
- You can have students record dialogues in class and then publish them in the class blog.
- You can send sts a dictation they have to write down for homework.
- You can read a text about a content sts are going to see in the future.
After a comment left by Alex, this is a trial using VOCAROO
Vocaroo is also very simple. No need to sign up. YOu record and can get a link or an embed code. You'll see the quality of the recording was not so clear.
My trial with CHIRBIT
Chirbit is slightly more complicated than the others, you have to sign up, and after recording it provides you with a link and the possibility to share in various sites. Couldn't find an embed code though. Sound quality was not the best either.
Well, my evaluation would be the following: if you want to record something simple, audio only, my choices would be AUDIOPAL and VOCAROO (sound was not so good).
With RECORDR I have the option of having a video made and it's as simple as Audiopal. The only thing I didn't like so much was that even recording audio only the embeddable player is very big.
