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.

    I don’t have a Web-based app (but if you find one, let me know!) I do, however, use an Olympus digital voice recorder. When you’re done, you can plug the device into a USB port on your computer and upload/save the audio file there. You’d be able to email it like any other file.

    First thing that jumps to mind would require an installation on local/institution servers, but it is free and open source. It may not be sending a file to an instructor – perhaps a link to an archive.
