Voicethread is a great tool for collecting audio from students. It will also work for short video assignments or performances.
Pros: Lightweight, done entirely within the browser so students don’t have to download any extra software, integration with Moodle, accepts a wide variety of media formats.
Cons: Requires an internet connection to use. Archiving presentations is somewhat of a tedious and cumbersome process.
