Recently, we featured a blogpost called: 5 Easy Ways to Livestream Your Shiurim & Events. Following this post, a rabbi contacted us and asked the following question: “What is the easiest way to record my classes and share them with my congregants?”

Having an easy way to record, edit and share audio of your classes is important for both you and your organization. After all, having an easy way for people to listen to your classes online allows them the opportunity to”check out” your institution without having to walk through your doors.

Likewise, if a rabbi or educator is looking to move to another job or city, being able to share a link with a hiring committee to your audio classes, could be integral to you landing the new position!

When it comes to recording, editing and sharing audio—there are a lot of sites out there that all claim to offer the easiest way to share recording.

Let’s be honest. It’s never that simple. It can be hard to find a site that really “does the trick.”

In light of the above, we present you with the following chart (also see this link), courtesy of Richard Byrne. We are certain that it will help you choose the online platform that will work for you.
