Sharing a VoiceThread with a Class in D2L

If a VoiceThread has been added to a course via Course View (less common option, see  Adding VoiceThread to a Course), then steps need to be taken share VoiceThreads with the course. 

  1. Hover over the VoiceThread presentation that should be shared with the class. 
  2. When options appear, select Share [A].
    VoiceThread Share Button
  3. The sharing settings options for the presentation will open. Select the Secure tab [A].
  4. Select Groups [B]. 
  5.  Select the class from the list of groups [C]. 
  6. Voicethread Share with Class Options Highlighted
  7. Select View, Comment, and Edit to customize the ways that users can interact with the VoiceThread [A]. 
  8. Select Share [B].

Note: Although VoiceThread also provides links and embed codes for sharing presentations, share them instead with the class's group. Users will not be logged in to their VoiceThread accounts automatically if they access a VoiceThread through a pasted link or when it is embedded in a page.


If a VoiceThread is part of a graded assignment, it cannot be associated with a grade item in D2L. Instead scores will need to be manually entered Grades. View Entering Grades for more information.​
