Some Great Tools for Transcribing Audio and Video Content ~ EdTech and MLearning

Some Great Tools for Transcribing Audio and Video Content ~ EdTech and MLearning | Teaching English and Technology | Scoop.it
Transcription softwares can be costly and hard to operate. This is particularly the case with those pro tools employed to transcribe lengthy audio and video recordings. Researchers use them to transcribe their data into textual input for analytical purposes. Examples of such tools are provided in at the end of this post.

For teachers and educators looking for simple and easy to use transcription tools, we would suggest the following: automated speech to text apps or audio players designed for transcription works.

12 Ways To Share Almost Any File With Your Students - te@chthought

12 Ways To Share Almost Any File With Your Students - te@chthought | Teaching English and Technology | Scoop.it
"As a 21st century teacher, you probably need to share stuff, and have stuff shared with. “Stuff” like pdfs, various word processing documents, video files, and other digital fare. The traditional way to do this has been email, but limits here–including speed, file size, and the relative clunkiness of sharing with large groups–make sharing files through email less than “best practice.” We started to create a chart that listed the nuance details of each platform, from storage and sharing limits, FTPing ability, the need to sign up to use, and password-protecting to flexible expiration dates for rights to files–but then we found that Wikipedia had already done this (and then some). So we instead picked our favorite dozen, and then ranked them in terms of their flexibility and integration that education technology demands. Though most of the tools below can share most files (mp3s, .movs, .mp4s, exe, .zip, .doc and .docx files, .pdfs, etc.), we focused more on documents, images, folders and software integration than incredibly detailed features that may make it overkill for your classrooms."
