App of the Week: AudioBoom

Alright, so you want to add a voice over or make a recording of something, but you need an embed code or you need to be able to email it out.  What do you do?  Well, you use AudioBoom!

Now some of you may be thinking that the name of that looks familiar.  You would be correct.  AudioBoom used to be AudioBoo.  I don’t know why they added the “m,” sorry.  However, the product is still very useful.  The first thing you need to do is set up your free account online.  Then simply download the app to you device and sign in using the same username and password.  Not only does it record your voice and give you an embed code, but you can also add a photo to your recording.

So what does that mean for you in your class?  Well, if you are teaching an ESL class you could create recordings for your students to translate.  If you teach English you could record readings of poems and such for when you can’t be in class (ie. in case of snowmageddon).  You can use it to do a voice over of an instructional video with bad audio.  The possibilities are endless.  Just come on in to Instructional Support and Development and we can help you figure out how to use it in your classes.
