Online Discussions with VoiceThread

VoiceThread takes online discussions and presentations to the next level. Instructors can pull documents, slides, graphics, videos, and audio into a “VoiceThread” where they can then record audio or video narration. A VoiceThread can be created and linked to within a myCourses site for students to watch and add audio/video comments to. Instructors can also assign audio/video comments on a VoiceThread as a graded assignment. Students can even make VoiceThread presentations of their own that can be shared with the class and submitted to the instructor for a grade.
