TLT-SWG April 24, 2012

Vocaroo really is as simple as it seems - potentially VERY useful!  Anyone know more about the origin, originator, intentions?   

Last Friday I was talking with Beth Dailey about our
  FridayLive! session that afternoon and my hope that we could find some ideas
  to offer to our courageous presenterJennifer McCrickerd to help her prepare
  her first online course for this summer.
We knew that Jennifer had already wisely decided to begin by
  limiting the kinds of technology she would use with her students. I knew that
  Beth has taught a variety of online and hybrid courses and has also helped
  many others make this transition, so I asked her what she would recommend as
  a VERY easy, simple way to allow an instructor and her students to exchange
  voice recordings online.

Here's Beth's timely email response to me (April
  20, 2012):
"...simplest way for
  students to provide an individual [audio] response to the instructor as part
  of an online course. She suggested
 The students do not need to create an
  account to use it and they have the option of copying a URL into their
  assignment, e-mailing the link or even embedding the recording into the
  assignment.  You cannot respond with this service, but you could create
  your own recording and put it into the feedback when you grade."
Penny Kuckkahn who gave me the suggestion"
Vocaroo as last week's LTA at
  the very beginning of the
FridayLive! online session. See Result of my test recording made just a few minutes before we began: THIS WAS DONE WITHIN MY FIRST VISIT TO THE SITE - NO LOGIN, NO TRAINING!

More recent recording made using Vocaroo... trying to say something a little more meaningful...and trying to demonstrate some options avail from Vocaroo:

Note:  as of April 23, 2012, I couldn't find Apps for using Vocaroo with iPhone/iPad IOS or Android.  But I found a free download for a trial version of "Vocaroo Express" - I cannot recommend it yet because I couldn't easily find a flagrantly trustworthy source of the full version for which there would be a fee.I also found  "Vocaroo Assignments"  - but I'm not sure of the origin or intended use of these assignments, but you can decide for yourself.
