Hi guys -
I'm currently finalizing my Public Speaking syllabus. What I'm running up against is a problem of how to record their speeches. In the past we've required them to buy VHS tapes and then we recored them on tje in-house system. But problems with the recording system and the students' lack of motivation in going to the library to watch their performances, have hampered the whole process.
Some TAs have had the students record speeches at home and then upload them to a private YouTube channel, but I am really trying to stress the "public" in speaking and would rather they perform them live in front of an audience. Personal laptops don't always have the sound quality needed to do great playback.
So I'm wondering if any of "youse guys" (to get all Chicago on you) have any ideas?
