Voicethread


What is it?

A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or phone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). You can share a VoiceThread with students and colleagues for them to record comments too. Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities and pick which comments are shown through moderation. With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. There is no software to install.
