My new favorite applet for teaching and learning languages online: NanoGong

I just discovered this awesome applet called NanoGong from the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology. It’s a mini-recorder that you can use on webpages (and Moodle) and it will work perfectly in my vocabulary classes! The students listen to my pronunciation (by using flash mp3 players that I already embedded into the flashcards) and then they can record their pronunciation of the word and compare the two. They can also save their recordings in .wav or .flv format. I am so geeked out by this! I can’t wait for them to try it next week!

This is what it looks like, though this is just the image. Try it for yourself on NanoGong’s site or my FSI Italian flashcards. I plan on adding it to other flashcards when I get the chance.

I ♥ technology.
