Portable audio for exam use
With public exams coming up we are looking at our arrangements for language listening exams. Normally we'd use the various PCs in the school. but with an increase in candidate numbers we'll struggle to accommodate all students while still maintaining a metre separation. So someone suggested using portable players, such as iPod Shuffles.
Has anyone tried using portable devices for this purpose? Cah anyone recomend a device? They must have the ability to pause/rewind/ff etc.

We are using laptops but if you don't have enough then something like this [ame=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-DEJ011S-CEQ-CD-Walkman/dp/B000NVWCWK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1240409994&sr =1-1]Sony DEJ011S.CEQ CD Walkman: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo[/ame] should be ok. The exam is on a CD which is sealed until the day so you won't have much time to convert it to an MP3. Even less if your exams are the same as ours and start 0900 on a Monday

Thanks for that - I'll take a look.
I understand that our audio arrives before time on cassette (really!) with MP3 promised next year. Possible because we do IB here.

Only problem with the Sansa Clip is it has a built in Radio, probably not what you want if you're using it in lessons and I doubt they'd be permitted in exams.
