Online Free Voice Recording Tool

I have a faculty member who teaches a language and she would like her students to have a conversation in the target language while recording it and then be able to send it to her.

We talked about Skype, and there is a great PC tool called Pamela that can record Skype, for free, under 15 minutes, and then the resulting file can be sent to someone.

We also talked about whether the students had smart phones.  My iPhone has an iTalk app that lets you record something and then email the file.

What we’re really looking for, thought, is a web-based app that two students, in different locations, can sign-in to, record a short conversation, and then have a file created that could be sent to the instructor.

If you can think of a tool like that, please leave the name in Comments below or email it to me.  If you don’t have my email address, you can find out how to contact me here.

Introducing my new look

Since moving blogs over to my own domain I’ve been using the default theme until I found one I liked.  I’ve posted to my social networks a couple of times to see if I could get some recommendations, to no avail.

The Emerging & Instructional Technology Lab, of which I am the Director, is moving its web presence from a wiki to a workpress site.  As part of the process, one of our talented student assistants searched out some themes for the new site.  Although for now we’ve decided on a different theme for that blog, there was one I like a lot and decided to make it the theme for my own blog.  Thanks Kevin!

Feel free to let me know what you think.
