AudioBoo
I have used a few podcasting styled websites over the last few years and i have found none to be as quick and straight forward as AUDIOBOO.
Either create your podcast directly from their site or upload your podcast in mp3 form. Then embed the podcast directly into your LMS or website as below:
Audioboo Example (mp3)
Voicethread
Oral language at its most interactive and powerful.


Student Creativity
Presenting
Little Bird Tales
Stories are created, using uploaded artwork or drawn with the paint function (or both - photo with digital art added) and then text is added. What makes it so great is the option to add voice to each page. Digital literacy to the full!
Can be linked nicely to your website (embedded).

Story Bird
Using premade artistic resources to help kids tell their stories. Beautifully presented and fully printable or embeddable.
