If it’s not easy and intuitive students won’t find it and use it. I think that is why you have seen such a large number of students starting to use it as they are finding it on their own. I mean it says ‘Listen’, how much easier can you get. The general record, play pause icons make it intuitive to other technology that people may have used.
