Audioboo - Easily Create and Share Audio Messages

Last week I shared three ways that you can quickly create audio messages to add to your blog. Audioboo is another free tool for creating audio messages to share on the web. Using Audioboo you can record messages on your mobile device using Audioboo's free Android or iPhone apps. You can also record messages directly on the Audioboo website. Messages that you create can be shared by embedding your recording into a blog or website. You can also share messages by posting them to Twitter, Facebook, Posterous, and Tumblr.

Applications for Education
As I mentioned last week adding an audio message to your classroom blog or website can be a good way to help deliver important messages to your students and their parents. Having an audio message, even if it's the same as a text announcement, increases the chances that a visitor to your blog will take notice of something important.
