AudioPal - Free internet audio mp3 player for personal websites

AudioPal - Free internet audio mp3 player for personal websites | technologies | Scoop.it
Make a Free mp3 audio player & embed audio on any website. Use text-to-speech, mic, or upload mp3! Make an interactive website with AudioPal (no player download needed)! Get your free player.
John Dalziel's insight:

AudioPal, a free service, offers three way to create short audio messages to embed in any web presence.
Users can...
   - record using the microphone connected to their computer;
   - record by calling AudioPal's phone system; or
   - create a message by using AudioPal's text-to-speech function.
AudioPal has many potential uses within education but does require users enter an email address in order to access the embed code and sharing links.

If learners don't have email accounts, practitioners could set-up a classroom Gmail account that all learners enter.

All of the AudioPal messages that their learners create would then go to that one email account that they manage.

John Dalziel's insight:

Surprise.ly – is an on-line service where you can watch a YouTube video, without any of the usual clutter normally seen on a YouTube video page.

By inputting the URL, the video is played against a black background. Clicking on the screen starts & stops the video.

ViewPure / videos without clutter

ViewPure / videos without clutter | technologies | Scoop.it
Watch YouTube videos without comments, ads, related videos, or any other distractions. It's great for teachers, parents, and organizations alike - or really, anybody.
John Dalziel's insight:

The ViewPure website and ViewPure browser bookmarklet are great tools for practitioners who want to show a YouTube video in their learning environment, but don't want to risk displaying "related" sidebar content. 

ViewPure has been around for a four or five years.
The site has been updated to offer helpful search tools.
Practitioners can now search for YouTube videos through the ViewPure website.
NOTE: ViewPure is not a work-around if your learning provider blocks YouTube and it is not a tool for downloading YouTube videos.
