-Voki I have used this tool throughout my internship and I have used it to communicate with my students since I have left. There are so many options to create Avatars with this site, and there are various ways you can add a "voice" to your character. This one is a lot of fun for students (and teachers!)

-Voice Thread can be a great tool within the classroom, I like the possibilities with this site because if you want your students to participate but don't have media release, you can easily post a picture of whatever they are commenting on, but still use their voice!

Jamendo is a great site with free music available for download. Remember to give credit, but these artists upload their music for use! This can be used in podcasts and other areas, just be cautious as some times there are explicit lyrics within the songs.
