Learn Out Loud is a one-stop-shop for audio and video materials that can be used either inside or outside the classroom. There is a wide selection of audio books, lectures, and speeches that can be uploaded to an iPod or streamed live to a desktop. The homepage hosts a demonstration video that will familiarize users with the site’s many functions. Some media content must be purchased for a fee, but the “free stuff” section gives you open access to thousands of audio and video files at no cost. Additionally, a special kids’ section provides age-appropriate learning tools to complement any classroom lesson plan.
