VoiceThread for the Classroom


Published on

VoiceThread is an interactive media album; it is somewhat similar to a PowerPoint presentation, where slides are created using images, audio and video. They can also play automatically; however, the similarity ends there. What makes VoiceThread unique is the ability for people to add their comments through recording their voice on to VoiceThread.
