I was at a workshop on podcasting last week and the instructor was listing ways to use podcasting and her ideas were the exact ones that had brought me to the workshop, BUT then she said "Have you thought about using it for Oral Administration of Test for your sped students". I was floored...It sounds perfect. I can see at least 3 reasons to do it, so I am sold.
I want to make it as easy as possible for my teachers. The plan is to record the test in audacity, download the test to an MP3 player to hand to the student and allow the student to control the pace of the test (repeating a question, pausing, etc).
Here's the problem. For the student to be able to repeat the question, each question must be a different track. I understand that process, but it seems kind of tedious. I was wondering if there is away to split a track. It would be easier for the teacher to record the whole test and then go back and split the track into separate tracks.
