VoiceThread is a cloud-based learning tool used to share and discuss documents and media. VoiceThread can be used to enhance communication, collaboration, and engagement. Some examples of its uses are:

  • Virtual Discussions (for example, you can provide verbal comments to a student on a paper; the student can reply with comments or questions)
  • Narrated PowerPoints
  • Collaborative Presentations
  • Reflections
  • Digital Stories

Five commenting options are available to discuss the content: microphone, webcam, text, phone or audio-file upload. A VoiceThread can be shared with a class, a single person, or groups of people.
