In a language class, I would like to record (audio) questions, stories, etc. and use it as an assignment in Canvas module. Students will be responding to my recorded questions, etc.
I suggest using a quiz for this, especially if there will be multiple prompts for students to reply to. Use the Essay question type, and when you write the question you can record your audio using the Canvas built in audio tool.
When students take the quiz they will have the same Rich Content Editor to reply in, so they can record audio in the same manner.
