Audio Recordings in Assignment Module
 

Hello

Is there a good free voice recorder that is built into the Assignment module?

I know about PooDLL which is just great but a little too expensive for our little research group here in Thailand (I understand of course that it could not be free for ever).

I also know about "audio online" which no longer works with Moodle 3.3.1 - it just breaks the theme and I am quite partial to keeping this theme (it also needs flash).

The H5p recorder is very good but, unfortunately, is not incorporated into the Assignment module.

Are there any other suggestions out there?

Thanks a lot

Andrew

Just following Ben to say that in that (excellently written) blog post, it does mention that you can't use this for assignment feedback (by the teacher) but you can use it for students submitting assignments.

Thank you both very much. I did not know this solution. I will experiment with it though at first glance I would prefer it if it were embedded in the assignment plugin. Let's see !. Thank you!

Double thanks as it *is* possible to embed the recorder in the Assignment plugin. This is done by setting the assignment to be delivered as an online text which in turn invokes TinyMCE or ATTO editors (with the voice recorder embedded in them). So... the student makes the recording, saves it and submits the assignment - and there it is. True, though, the teacher is not able to respond with a recorder but, at least for the moment, it is ok for my little research project.

Unfortunately, they turned off feedback ("by recommendation of one of the guys from Moodle HQ"), and luckily for me I have a version that is recording students assignment and teacher's feedback as TinyMCE plugin only.

Only problem with this plugin is his basic UI (for most people), and non-existence of in memory FFMPEG conversion to smaller audio format for Chrome.

On all of our testing systems worked fantastically.
