Providing Audio Feedback: Three Easy Options

Oct. 17, 2011

Personalized auditory feedback is an easy way to help establish a sense of connection between student and instructor. There are many free and easy-to-use audio-recording resources available online. Here is a list of our top three:

1. Jing

Jing is a free software that may be used to easily share basic screen captures and screen recordings. The program is an invaluable tool for use in education as it allows you to capture an image or a video while also recording your voice. Jing’s educational capabilities are endless. The tool is an invaluable means of giving in-depth feedback to students on their assignments. Why simply mark-up a paper with revisions when you can easily provide direct, more personable feedback that is similar to a one-to-one conference with a student?

Examples of audio feedback with Jing:

2. Ipadio

Ipadio technology links up your telephone with the internet, enabling the live broadcast of audio directly to the internet… all from a standard telephone. After you record to iPadio using any type of phone, recorded files can be downloaded, linked using a direct URL, or embedded. Like the other two Audio options, iPadio is FREE.

3. AudioBoo

AudioBoo is much like Ipadio in that the technology allows you to create an audio recording that is instantly linked with a URL, or that may be embedded. AudioBoo files are recorded using your computer’s microphone, rather than a telephone.

This document will give you step-by-step instructions on how to create an AudioBoo account, create a podcast and embed it into your course.
