VoiceThread is an interactive, collaborative, web-based tool that that allows you to communicate through images, audio recordings, videos, and text. You can use VoiceThread to set up a discussion board, record a lecture, or show images. You can add text, audio, or video comments to a VoiceThread, so students can ask questions at a specific point in a lecture or respond to discussion prompts. In addition, you can have students create their own VoiceThread presentation as part of an assignment.
NOTE: VoiceThread recently updated their software to use HTML5 instead of Flash. For this reason, Safari will not work with VoiceThread as it is not HTML5 compliant. You will need to use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
