I am just loving this free tool called Freecorder.com. It allows you to open a file online, and record comments for the students from your browser toolbar. Once you record the audio, you can email the file to the student for them to listen. I think it really helps personalize your feedback, and from what I've seen, students really like it. It's really easy to install and use. (You do need admin rights on your computer)

I also like the idea of using it in discussion boards to comment on a conversation thread, or shipping out a weekly update for students. The only drawback is not talking too long, to keep the file small and easy to share. (I'd suggest 10 minutes)
