It looks like the team over at Yackpack has been busy working up another batch of their yack magic. A few months ago they launched Yackpack Live, a feature which allows you to talk in real time to anyone in your pack.
Now they've added another exciting Yackpack product to their already impressive and innovative arsenal of Web 2.0 audio tools: Walkie-Talkie Widget.
The nifty Walkie-Talkie Widget tool allows you to easily (we like that!) put voice on any web page! Best of all there's no configuration, no software, and only
one button -- easy peasy! Check out the CNET Webware article about the Walkie-Talkie Widget!
So go check out the new audio toys over at Yackpack! There are a ton of ways to use Yackpack and the new Walkie-Talkie Widget as a way to engage those Gen Y learners in your classroom.
How about putting a Walkie-Talkie Widget on your course blog? Or wiki? Or online syllabus? These are all great ways to get the conversation going.
Oh yeah, one more thing. Keep your eyes peeled for the YackPlayer!
