Earlier this week I wrote about SpeakPipe’s updated widget for receiving voicemail through your blog. SpeakPipe offers another free tool for recording. SpeakPipe’s Voice Recorder is a free tool for quickly creating an MP3 voice recording in your web browser on a laptop, Chromebook, Android device, or iOS device.
To create a recording with the SpeakPipe Voice Recorder simply go to the website, click “start recording,” and start talking. You can record for up to five minutes on the SpeakPipe Voice Recorder. When you have finished your recording you will be given an embed code that you can use to place it in your blog or website. You will also be given a link to share your recording. Click the link to share your recording and that will take you to a page to download your recording as an MP3 file.
Applications for Education
SpeakPipe’s Voice Recorder does not require you to register in order to create and download your audio recordings. The lack of a registration requirement makes it a good choice for students who don’t have email addresses or for anyone else who simply doesn’t want to have to keep track of yet another username and password.
Students could use SpeakPipe’s Voice Recorder to record short audio interviews or to record short audio blog entries.
Teachers could use SpeakPipe’s Voice Recorder to record instructions for students to listen to in lieu of having a substitute teacher read instructions to their students.
