Use VoiceThread!

VoiceThread is a very user friendly audio/visual sharing site that can help you reach your students both in and out of the classroom!  You can share photos related to any topic you’re covering, and then let your class leave comments for discussion (either by typing or as an audio clip) at their own pace.  Great potential for flipping the classroom here.  Check it out!
