I asked Penny Kuckkahn, Instructional Designer/Faculty Development Coordinator, for the easiest way to produce a voice recording and she referred me to Vocaroo. This is truly a simple application. You don't need to sign up and you immediate get a URL and can even embed the recording. Below is the recording I made summarizing the work we had been doing in a blended learning course I am teaching, Academic Mgt. 101.

I sent the voice recording to my students via e-mail with a word cloud image created from the script. I used Wordle to produce the word cloud. Developing the script was the hardest part of the process.
