Audio recorder (Flash 10.1+) submission method. Records locally and uploads via HTTP POST, so there's no need for a streaming server!

Current versions available: 3

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

    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,

    Thanks for introducing this audio recorder.

    Can I automatically record my session and include/exclude audio in my session recordings?
