A SoundCloud Experiment
So SoundCloud is a well known music sharing site that lets users upload or record their own 'sounds', convert them to visual formats, and gives listeners the opportunity to comment on specific parts of the file. I'm thinking that this could work well with a conversation class that I have to teach in the Spring semester. Students will have a chance to record short speeches on a topic of interest and get specific feedback on particular areas of the speech that work or don't work. It's going to take some planning and plenty of patience with the technology, but I'm going to give this one a shot in the liquid textbook unit that I'm putting together.
