  14. 14. Let’s see what online students have to say about VoiceThread.
  15. 15. “I can say that all of my other online classes, I remember maybe one name from the class and that is because I knew them in real life. I feel like I ‘know’ most of my classes [in this class] because of the activities assigned.”
  16. 16. “Listening gave me a better understanding of the material. In the showcase assignments, you could actually hear the passion in the speakers’ voices…”
  17. 17. “…having to say the words helped me understand what I was talking about better than if I had just been writing it down.”
  18. 18. “…it made me re-evaluate my answers. Mostly because I didn't want to sound like I had no idea what I was talking about. Plus when you write something down there is not much emotion to it and being able to speak out loud my ideas made me feel like I could connect and explain the material better.”
  19. 19. “I feel that taking this class and having been required to push myself to leave voice comments has helped me learn that I am capable of overcoming my fears of embarrassment.”
