EdTech Tool Uses:Voxopop is essentially a message board/forum system that uses voice instead of text. These forums are called "talkgroups" and they can be set to public or hidden which is particularly helpful for use with students (anyone can explore and listen to public discussions, but only signed up users can start or join talkgroups, or join in on discussions). You can stay up to date with your talkgroups by listening on the Voxopop website, by keeping a 'watchlist' and receiving email notifications whenever someone adds a message to any of those discussions, or via an RSS reader using the RSS/Podcast feed link. You can also use a 'podcatcher' (podcast receiver) to transfer new messages to an MP3 device. Voxopop is particularly popular with MFL subjects.
