These days some of the members of this blog have decided to take the steps of Manuel Viera (Iles en FLE) and assess our students speaking skills by podcasting. One of the difficulties with this kind of exercises is to find an easy and light way for the students to record themselves and send it to you. The name of the solution is: Vocaroo, an on-line recording service which allows the user to record themselves and later send it to a particular recipient. It also allows embedding and linking or downloading in .wav or .ogg. The only downside is that files are only stored for 2 months, time enough to assess and store it somewhere else.
