VoiceThread - From the VoiceThread site:
With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. All with no software to install.
A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.
Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities, and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies.
This free site allows anyone to post a 160 character message to a private, customizable wall. It uses include inviting students to post (either with an alias or anonymous) questions, replies to a question of the day, ideas for brainstorming, helpful Web sites, or suggestions for the group. It is not compatible with Apple products. If you have an Android phone or tablet, please experiment and share your results.
From the Wiggio FAQ page: “The best way to explore the features is to enter Wiggio and play around. The tools include mass messaging (emails, text messages, voicemails), scheduling, file sharing and editing, polling, conference calling, video conferencing, and project management. You can use each feature with members in your group but also with your contacts that are not in any of your groups. For instance, you can send a poll to anyone in your contact list. They do not need to be a member of any group.”
