Yackpack is simplified version of podcasting that only requires a microphone — no software, no other equipment, no special skills. You just record a message, send it, and then you can paste the url on a teacher’s homepage or elsewhere. It’s ideal for English Language Learners to practice their pronunciation.
After I finished writing this post about Yackpack, I learned about another similar site called Evoca. The wonderful added ability Evoca has is that you can also phone in the message you want podcast.
I’ve placed the link to Evoca next to Yackpack on the Examples of Student Work page.
