Are you looking for an online presentation tool that provides natural interactions between instructors and students?  VoiceThread is a totally web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of an asynchronous conversation.

A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments using any mix of text, a microphone, a web cam, a telephone, or uploaded audio file. VoiceThread runs inside your web browser, so there is no software to download, install, or update.  VoiceThread also enables students to create content, where they can present and defend their work before experts and peers.

Workshop Objectives:

By the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Create a VoiceThread
  • Share a VoiceThread
  • Establish best practice expectations for student participation
  • Share ideas about using VoiceThread in Blackboard courses 

If this session date does not work out for your schedule, we would be happy to set up a one-on-one deskside consulting session, or even a customized departmental workshop. Details on how to request these are found on
