Three Audio Tools

Odiogo is a free tool which creates text-to-speech. These files can then be downloaded and played on Ipods, MP3 players and even mobiles. It seems to have been especially designed to transform blog postings into mini podcasts which you can listen to when away from your screen. As with many other tools, you need to sign up and then begin your exploration of Odiogo.  It's a fun way for learners to share their blog entries with their class and other students.

Vocaroo is another audio tool worth trying out. Vocaroo claims to be an audio toy, which allows you to share audio messages in blogs and websites, but you need to be aware that messages aren't saved forever nor are downloadable. Nevertheless, it can create learning activities which are fun to integrate in and out of the classroom.

Wetoku is a cool video interview tool which you can then embed in your blog or website in 3 simple steps - meet, record, share.
