Voice Posts in Discussion Fora

    I would love to see a voice/audio response option inside discussion fora.  (Think voicethread, internal...)


    Many students are put off by the writing aspect of online discussion, and an audio option might increase participation.  For courses in which the instructor prefers to have students practice writing more, the option could be made unavailable by the faculty in the same way that other features are (or default could be unavailable, and instructors could turn the feature on).  The files themselves could be stored temporarily (perhaps the faculty could also have some options for duration, as well), snap-style, both for storage-space purposes and to encourage timely and consistent check-ins by students.
