Rediscover VoiceThread

Posted on: August 23rd, 2019 by skentner

Are you looking for ways to enhance your course’s PowerPoints or create more interactive discussion boards?

VoiceThread may be your solution! VoiceThread allows instructors to facilitate online discussions, so students can post, comment, and collaborate with their peers in a fun and engaging way.

These conversations are not live, so the timing of discussions allows students to participate whenever and wherever it is convenient for them. Discussions may include a mixture of images, videos, documents, and media files. VoiceThread is fully integrated with Sakai. VoiceThread can be placed on a Sakai course lesson page or added to a Sakai course as a standalone tool.
