    Web 2 probebly applies to communictaions and language subjects more than any other – it’s got all the right ingredients – writing, video, audio and publishing.

    I have been able to upload video’s and photo’s but haven;t found a site for uploading audio – do you know of any good web 2 sites for uploading audio – e.g. just to upload my songs for instance or for language teachers to upload and index audio material

    There’s such a ubiquity of services it’s hard to know what to recommend – podcasting seems to be the focus for audio, so you could try Gcast and most of the free storage solutions allow you to stream audio or publish to the web, see Pipex’s Digital Safe .

    From an English language teachers perspective, ICT in ELT, recommends some on-line tools at the University of British Columbia, the Language Pronunciation Tool allows teachers to upload there own pronunciation exercises to produce a learning module: looks interesting.

    ps. looks like the CSS on this page strips out underlining for links – if you hover over Gcast/Digital Safe or Language Pronunciation Tool you can see they’re linking – a bit annoying really :)
