Adding VoiceThread to a Course Site in D2L

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.
