PoodLL: Voice Recording in Wattle

PoodLL is the voice recording tool in Wattle. It is enabled in the text editor, and is available in both TinyMCE or Atto.

With PoodLL enabled, you can record speech almost anywhere that you can type a paragraph: typing a forum post, editing a Wiki page, or creating a Page or Book.

In your assignment settings, you can also enable PoodLL to give feedback through a voice recording. See more under Assignment to learn how to set this up.

NOTE: This tool is designed for short 5-min recordings. Long recordings may be cut short or interrupted.
