PodOmatic

PodOmatic allows language teachers and students to browse and find podcasts from users all over the world. By registering for a free account, users can also upload audios or videos to create a podcast and share it on different social media, blogs, websites, etc.

Evaluation: PodOmatic is an intuitive platform that offers open access to audio contents in different languages published by other users. The quality of the audios may vary and there are no reviews, so it is necessary to check them first to determine whether they are appropriate for a specific group of learners. It is possible to use the PodOmatic online platform but also to download the user-friendly mobile app.

Cost: Free with registration (some features without login) + paid premium features
