Free eBooks And Audio Books To Read Online Or Download - 8 views

  •  
    "This is the launch page for the pages here at Gizmo's Tech Support Alert that list sites with free ebooks and audiobooks.

    There are 3 pages that separate sites on the format of the ebook: Kindle, ePub, and Online reading.

    There is a main page for both ebooks and audiobooks that lists all the sites carrying each. There are also pages of genre listings.

    The genre pages that do not list an audiobook page, contain free audiobook links.  I am working on this and eventually all the genre pages will have separate free ebook and free audiobook pages.

    The sites within the free comic books and free motion comics pages are not included in the main ebook and audiobook pages."

    Podcasting simplified? I learned about this tool to make podcast and hosting an easy process. Look forward to trying it out. Easy and hosting are the operative words here. If the process is simple and there is a ready place for hosting your podcast, then that's all you need to make it happen.

    Free online suite of high power media tools. They 'look great'. Haven't had a moment to try them out. Quite sophisticated, they may be more than you need. I did view the demo for their Audio Editor and it's slick. You could create simple podcasts with it no problem, but you'd be using just a smidgen of the toolset available.

    With the rise of YouTube and podcasting, including audio and/or video in your eLearning is more and more a necessity. It used to be expensive to produce video and audio and required a studio to create. No longer. There are dozens of great, inexpensive tools that you can use to create audio and video for your eLearning. Attend this Online Forum to examine the tools and techniques that will help you use media in your eLearning.

    I am sure many of you are already members of the E Learning Guild, but there is a on line forum coming up in July that might be of interest.

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud - 3 views

  •  
    A tool for having conversations around media. Upload pictures and then add comments. I've seen this used for students around the world to post pictures of their homes and then comment on the differences and similarities. Great language tool because comments are written and/or spoken. Great cultural tool because of the addition of media.

    VoiceThread is a great tool for asynchronous communication about a specific image, document, or presentation. While text is neat, there is something special about listening to someone's voice.
  •  
    VoiceThreads could be created featuring presentations (about a primary document related to immigration) for teacher and student use, encourageing reflection (of historic photograph(s) taken at Ellis Island) by students, and host a debate (about immigration).
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great way to add voice to an online class. Students can create and participate in discussions with voice rather than simply text.
  •  
    This, right here, is what I desperately wish my students had in place of Finalsite as a way of creating blogs for their school Mission Portfolios. I know it isn't set up the exact same way, but it would certainly accomplish nearly the same purpose.

Last week, we looked at some basic tips to record high-quality audio. Those tips leaned more on the technology. Today we'll look at what you can do to get the best narration. I also added some tips from last week's comments section."

AudioPal - Audio software for free Text to Speech and voice recording - 1 views

  •  
    Try AudioPal, a free voice software, to record streaming audio or convert text to speech.
  •  
    The free service looks intriguing enough to try. The paid sitepal service could be something special as well. I've tried this and embedded a simple one minute greeting into my 6-Traits writing class. Works great. However you do need to know a little HTML to make this work. You retrieve an embed code which you paste into the html of a website (or a D2L message, or a Moodle Label) Relatively simple once you understand a little bit of cut and paste coding. You've found another fine resource!

      Awesome, especially for a world language teacher! As an example, I could post a picture and ask students to talk about it/describe it. Great for a fun oral assessment tool. Thanks for sharing this!!

    I love this website for online teaching if you have to present a lot of content. I also use it if I have a lot of students who are going to be absent for a particular lecture. This site allows you to upload lecture motes of some kind, and then narrate those notes. Additionally, people you invite to view your presentation can make comments or ask questions within each individual slide. It's a fantastic tool for asynchronous teaching.
