I would like to provide recordings of questions to students and where the student would answer the questions by pressing record and answering the question.
Is this possible? And how would I go about doing it?
Having the activity being done like a quiz, but rather than text, is to have it in voice recordings instead would be great.
Poodll's good but you'll need to install or have access to a Red5 streaming media server for it to work.
If you want non-Flash and non-Java solutions, you'll have to use simple file upload. As it stands, most browsers in mobile devices don't yet support media capture. (Older iPhones don't even support file upload!)
The poodll packages sounded good to me, and l've just downloaded the poodll plugins. I hope I don't have any problems when I start testing it, as you've got me worried about this red5 streaming media, of which I have no idea what that is.
However if I do come across problems of needing a streaming media server, I will try the other option. I was really hoping that if I downloaded a few plugins everything would simply work.
Sorry I am a bit late to this thread. You don't need a streaming server for PoodLL. If you use the MP3 recorder it will just work.
Whenever you set up a PoodLL thing (assignment submission, question , atto editor icons etc) you can choose the recorder that your students will use. If you choose the mp3 recorder, it works without any streaming server.
The option to use the public PoodLL streaming server is there for you, if you choose to use the other audio recorder or the video recorder. It is usually not necessary to set up your own streaming server unless you have lots of students or are keen to keep the whole show in house.
Let me know if you have any questions. And if you want to thrash around trying it out, there is a recording quiz all set up on http://demo.poodll.com . Go crazy there.
