Bunch of ways to do this. Here would be my two favorites:

(1) Buy yourself a decent microphone and plug it into your computer's
sound card, and download a free program like Audacity
( to do the recording. Audacity,
properly configured, is capable of saving your lectures in many
formats, not just WAV; an MP3 of your talk would be *much much*
smaller than the comparable WAV file without any discernible loss of

(2) Blog instead of email: Set up a free blog at, then
subscribe to their Audioblogger service (also free.) At that point,
you can literally "phone it in"... Audioblogger currently limits voice
"posts" to five minutes, but anything that you record will be posted
on your blog, where your students can find and listen to it (and post
comments -- text only -- in reply.)
