Moodle has no built-in tools for speech messaging or audioconferencing. However, there are some interesting projects which are working towards enabling the use of voice tools within Moodle, at various stages of maturity:

Free tools

  • COVCELL, an EU-funded project to provide various enhancements for online language learning, including audio conferencing.
  • Integration of Moodle with Gong (requires a Java server)
    • NanoGong is Open Source, may require code change of HTML editor
  • Integration of Moodle with dimdim open-source webconferencing system. (requires Windows or Linux for the server, Flash+IE/FireFox for the admin and client - still in beta (9 April 2007))
  • MoodleSpeex Java applets for voice messaging (note: does not require any modifications/additions to the server setup)
  • Audio_in_Moodle#Using_Audacity_to_Convert_audio_and_Record_voice Audacity is Open Source

Commercial tools

  • The Horizon Wimba company provides a subsription-based service providing voice tools for use in VLEs. Moodle integration of these tools is forthcoming.
