Posting audio files on teacher home pages

Some teachers don't know it, but they can easily post content on their school web page that goes beyond text and pictures. 

Posting audio files is a great way for teachers to share class messages with parents and students.  Some student activity prompts can also be posted online.  Students can listen to the file and then perform the appropriate task. 

To get started, use an audio recording program like Audacity.  Convert the file to a .mp3 file, which is a more universal file format and compressed, so it downloads or streams quickly.  Upload it to your server when logged into your site, and create a link to it. 

Voila!  Now your site visitors can hear your voice as well as reading your text.
