SoundCloud has become one of my newest favorite Web 2.0 Tools and iPad apps! It is easy to use, free (up to 120 minutes) and can be linked to QR Codes which makes me beyond happy! I am sure you have heard of QRVoice which is awesome but wouldn't it be great to have your voice linked to the QR Code!?
All you have to do is upload your file or record your voice right on the web! There is no time limit on recordings either!
Then copy the link and create a QR Code linked to a URL :)!
While in a panic over where to host a student created podcast linked to a QR Code for part of our FETC Presentation and trying to convert files and resolve compatibility issues I remembered SoundCloud and it worked better than I could have imagined and if I would have remembered it 30 minutes earlier I would have saved myself 3 new gray hairs! I loved it so much that I used it to record action verbs for our Bloom's pyramid for FETC which you will be seeing later this month!
I love that it plays on the iPad with NO issues and I didn't have to convert anything! I haven't tried the app yet but I am thinking it works a lot like Show Me (linked to the web with account info) and no need to do anything other than save!!! This may be my new solution for podcasting!
