VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of a conversation. VoiceThread runs inside your web browser, so there is no software to download, install, or update. It can be an easy way to differentiate instruction while providing engaging choices to "show" learning, engage in conversation, and think openly and critically about content.
VoiceThread can now, at the discretion of the instructor, be added into an eCollege course shell. There is an integration with the eCollege server login so there is no need for students and faculty to create separate VoiceThread accounts. Any instructor who wants to create and use VoiceThreads in their course only has to create an 'External Tool' content item.
Options available for each new VoiceThread item you add.
