  2. Voice Presentation - The teacher can post web content with an associated recording. Students can then post audio comments.
  3. Podcaster - Used by the teacher to deliver 'podcasts'. Students can easily download a series of audio recordings (via iTunes or similar software) to mp3 players such as an iPod.
  4. Voice Authoring - Allows teachers to add individual audio recordings throughout Moodle. There are three ways to add them:
    1. Block
    2. Activity - on your course homepage
    3. HTML Editor - you can add audio throughout Moodle via the HTML Editor. For example, in Forum messages, Quiz questions & Assignment feedback
