Voxer

Voxer | technologies | Scoop.it
Voxer is a walkie talkie like system with live voice, text, and photos. Get started by signing up and downloading our app for iOS, Android, or Windows phones.
John Dalziel's insight:

Voxer is a live messaging application that brings push-to-talk technology to smartphones.
Their service features live and recorded voice - if users push the button to talk, they can be heard on the other end as they speak, but everything is also simultaneously recorded so they and the recipient(s) can play back any message later.
Unlike other push-to-talk services and systems, Voxer also has integrated text, photo, and location sharing which can be sent alongside voice messaging. Users can to talk to individuals or groups - select up to 5 chat participants to communicate with at once (or up to 500 using Voxer Pro or Voxer Business).
I feel that Voxer is worth a closer look as a potential tool for WBL Assessors and other practitioners.

Skype Video Messaging – Catch Up Whenever, Wherever

Skype Video Messaging – Catch Up Whenever, Wherever | technologies | Scoop.it
Skype is all about keeping people close — but even the best technology can’t solve the problem of busy schedules or missed calls. Want to say goodnight to your kids while traveling, but you’ll be up in the air?
John Dalziel's insight:

Skype video messaging is now a full-fledged (and free!) feature in...
- Skype for Windows desktop,
- Skype for Windows 8,
- Skype for Mac,
- Skype for iPhone,
- Skype for iPad,
- Skype for Android and
- Skype for BlackBerry.
Practitioners and/or learners can now record and share a personal video message, even when their peers, assessors, verifiers and friends and family are not available.
The best part is that they’ll be able to view the video message as soon as they sign into Skype.
Skype Video Messaging is easy and convenient, and only the contact the user chooses to receive their message can view it.
