Finally putting an end to the need for a streaming server (or a Java applet) to allow students to record audio clips for Moodle assignments, the Online Audio Recording assignment uses Flash (10.1+) to record audio from a microphone, convert it to MP3 format and upload it to Moodle via HTTP POST.

- Place the "onlineaudio" directory within your_moodle_install/mod/assign/submission/
- Visit the admin notifications page and complete the installation
- Done!

USAGE (teacher):
- As a teacher, create (or edit) an assignment
- Under "Submission settings", set "Online audio recording" to "Yes" and choose the maximum number of recordings
- Save the assignment

USAGE (student):
- In the assignment submission, find the "Online audio recording" section
- If you haven't used it before, you may need to allow access to your microphone
- Click the red circle button to begin recording
- Click the blue square button (or the red circle button again) to stop recording
- Enter a file name and click "Save"
- Wait for it to state that it's "Ready to upload" and click the "Upload" button

    I am using Moodle 2.2 and by using this plugin I can record audio and upload them on server.
    But the limitation is I can record upto 8 or 9 minutes only. Beyond that if I record it gets stuck whuile uploading and never gets back. i have no idea how to fix it. Is this a limitation of this plugin, or do I need to try something else? Please suggest someone please.

    Sudeep, that sounds like you might be hitting the upload size limit in the assignment, course and/or site. I'm not sure how that would be handled - but it might result in the symptoms you describe. If you have small limits on any of these levels, can you please try increasing the upload limits and see if it fixes it? If not, please post in the forums or the bug tracker (see link in plugin details) so that a proper dialogue can take place.

    Paul, great plugin... just what I needed. One question - is there any way the teacher can give audio feedback to the student from within the assignment? Many thanks...

    Hi Paul
    Do you know if your plugin works with Moodle 3.1, do you plan to submit a compatible version ?
    Cheers, Anne

    I too am looking for a version compatible with at least Moodle 3.2. Some of our teachers teach pronunciation and have grown dependent on this assignment option. After the upgrade of our main Moodle the server admins have left this plugin behind sad
    I hope we can promise our users that the tool is coming back very soon.
    Many thanks and kind regards,
