VoiceThread can be added to a D2L course as an External Learning Tool. Depending on the goal of the assignment, students can interact with VoiceThreads through discussion formats or through presentations.
Note: Due to issues with accessibility, at this time VoiceThread is not recommended for lectures. See the
Panopto guides for information on a tool that can be used to record lectures.
Note: To add a link where students can authenticate their VoiceThread accounts or create VoiceThreads on their own, select the
VT Home display option. See
Creating a VoiceThread for information on the other display options and using VoiceThread for specific kinds of activities.
If setting up VoiceThread for a discussion format, follow the directions to
Use VoiceThread for Discussions.
If VoiceThread will be used for student presentations, see the directions to
Use VoiceThread for Presentations.
If sharing a previously-created VoiceThread, use the directions on
Sharing a VoiceThread to either
Share an Individual VoiceThread or
Share a VoiceThread in Course View
