Recording sound files on the iPad
Your iPad probably already has an app called GarageBand, which allows you to record both voice and instruments and is great for recording and creating music. It is, however, a little too complex to quickly make and manage voice recordings, such as those you might need for a student’s oral examination.
An app like Voice Recorder Pro 7 (free) is much better suited for this task. See a quick tutorial below:
1. Open VRP7
2. Select the quality
3.- Make the recording
4.- Work with the audio file
In addition to playing back the file, you will probably want to rename it to reflect the student or task and you will want to save a copy on the School network. You achieve this by tapping Open With Other Apps.
5.- Save the files
The file is automatically saved on your iPad. Currently, the best way to save the file on to the School Network is to email the file to yourself and then saving it manually in whichever folder. Other, better ways of achieving this are currently being trialed.
That’s it. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask 🙂
