Hey Wes, Another possible webtool to send audio might be www.pheeder.com It's kind of like an Twitter, leaving messages for people but you'd have to put their numbers in ahead of time.

I didn't realize the time limit was 60 seconds. That certainly does put a premium on content and delivery style! What a great idea to get students involved in sharing their voices with parents via this communication modality... Thanks for sharing the additional insights as well as the link! :-)

I've suggested this before to Scott McLeod when discussions about how to lead your admin to technology discussions come up. This is an example of implementing the technology where it is already at, or rather where folks are at. Yeah, this is not blogging and doesn't allow for a conversation, but it's something most households (and a lot of schools) have. In addition, all of us getting those calls (I get them for two schools/school districts where I live and my son attends and where I work) can attest to the poor quality of most of these messages (BORING). They could use better/tighter writing and a little more production. I think they would get fewer 'hang-ups' and more folks listening. One system limitation, the messages can only be 60 seconds, which means you have to have a tight script and editing. Here is a link to a message I produced using my son as the voice talent: http://mizmercer.edublogs.org/2007/03/03/creative-commons-and-podcasting/
