Audio recordings are an essential part of iDoceo. You can record music performances, events, take audio annotations, record full classes, etc. You will then be able to send it to your students via e-mail or export it effortlessly to another app in your iPad
Which elements can contain audio
You can add an audio recording anywhere in iDoceo: a class,cell,note,header,diary,planner,bulletin board,student, etc. You will find more details about annotations here Add annotations to any cell and about resources here
Audio is kept in an internal folder inside iDoceo, this means that backups of iDoceo will contain your audio files too
Audio file format
Audio files are stored as .m4a. The generated file is compressed (aka lossy file format) and you'll get more than decent audio quality when playing it back.
A two minutes audio file will take about 400KB of disk space
A tap over any audio file in iDoceo will start playing it.
Why not an MP3?
Creating an MP3 file is both CPU and memory consuming, as a result, battery would drain faster. We understand the iPad as an essential tool in your work and one of our priorities is to keep battery life at max.
