One of the advantages of being a Webhead is that when you are in the company of such enthusiasts, you never stop learning about new tools to use with students or in your communication with colleagues.
While reading the messages in our Yahoo group yesterday, I came across a very interesting tool - http://www.speakpipe.com/.
The ad on the page summarises the use of the tool. It says:
"Don't force your customers to type a text message. Let them talk and show them you are listening."
It's just what I need for my blog, I thought. It is very easy to install: you can add it as a widget with the HTML code you copy after registering on the page and it can be seen as a sign of a microphone on the right-hand side of the blog.
The use seems very simple, too. All you need is to click on the microphone and send a voice message to the owner of the widget.
Now I'm waiting for the first messages to arrive. And what are you waiting for, dear readers?
Send me a voice message :)
