clyp.it for Recording Audio Clips

I think one of the most underutilized features of an iPad, or any device, in the classroom is the ability to record audio.  I'm not just talking about shy students finding a voice because they can record their thoughts and press 'Play' instead of talking in front of the whole classroom.  Instead I'm talking about students recording their thoughts about their learning.  Many times it's quicker and easier to hit 'Record' and let your brain work it's way through the learning process instead of trying to get it all down on virtual paper.  There are a bunch of tools that allow you to record and also use another app at the same time, which is key when you have an iPad.

One tool I discovered today on FreeTech4Teachers.com is called Clyp.it and it is pretty simple to use to record and share audio files.  You can export to AirDrop, Mail, Google Classroom, amongst others.  It also works if you just visit the website on a laptop but for an iOS device or an Android you'll have to get the app
