The Internet has a wonderful array of free online recorders that can be very useful in a classroom.

Audio recordings are very useful for reading - I have used them in a project where a class shared the books we were reading with another class. Apart from that they can be used for quick audio messages on a blog or wiki.
Vocaroo.com has long been a favourite of mine when it comes to creating a quick sound file to either display on a blog or wiki, or even send by email to a friend or colleague. It is also useful to use for projects.
A useful site where you can type a message and it is read out using a voice synthesiser. There doesn't seem to be a limit to the length of the message. You can share the link to share the message. You can change the pitch, speed and more. It's a great way of giving instructions or homework over the net.
Audioboo is a mobile & web platform that effortlessly allows you to record and share audio for your friends, family or the rest of the world to hear. You can use it for reporting, for story-telling, educational use or quick tips.
