What is VoiceThread (VT)

VT is a cloud application that enables faculty and students to present, comment on and share content and ideas.  With VT faculty and students can have threaded conversations in text, images, audio and video formats.

Getting Started with VoiceThread

VoiceThread is integrated in Bb. It works best on Google Chrome and Firefox. To access it, go to a content page in your course, click "Build Content" > "York VoiceThread." Then follow the steps in the recorded hands-on training session to learn:

  • Setting up appropriate links to VT in your course
  • Presenting content and asking students to comment on or answer questions in your lectures or presentations
  • Creating assignments for students to present and others to comment or provide feedback in text, audio or video format
