Apowersoft Free Online Audio Recorder – Record any audio online with one click

Apowersoft Free Online Audio Recorder – Record any audio online with one click | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Apowersoft Online Audio Recorder is the best free audio recording software. It can record any sound from various audio input. One of its biggest advantages is that it is 100% free without no time limitations!
Nik Peachey's insight:

It doesn't make this very clear, but it also records screen activity at the same time too. Looks like it works better on PC than Mac as it's harder to get the full interface on the Mac.

Scoop.it!

MyBuckets

MyBuckets | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

The application allows you to connect to Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, LinkedIn, and/or Twitter, bringing all of your feeds into one central location. Not only does it provide a one-stop shop for these social networks, it allows you to group friends/followings across these networks into individual "buckets”. A bucket can be anything from one person you know, to a group such as family or co-workers, or even just a description like sports. The buckets you create or your connected social network feeds can be displayed, which enables you to see and act upon a real time listing of posts coming from each service.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This site enables you to manage all your social network connections from one place. Could be pretty useful for you and your students if you are taking social networking seriously.
