This paper explores issues within the use of audio for learning but gives a very different slant to the more usual podcasting approach. It considers the practicalities of enabling students to generate their own audio recordings with the potential to enhance and personalise learning in a self directed way that suits their individual learning styles. There is some discussion of hardware and its accessibility, cost and ease of use as well as protocols on what audio can/cannot be recorded or shared amongst students. The paper explores different types of scenario where recording can be used beneficially and uses real student case studies to demonstrate the efficacy of these, as perceived by the students themselves. There is also particular interest in the benefits for specific groups of students including those with English as an additional language or students with learning difficulties. In summary the paper gives evidence for how student generated audio can be embedded into the curriculum and the benefits it can bring.
