  • Run through Session focus Your task! First 2 screens of ‘What’s a voicethread?’
  • It’s a place where you can upload images, powerpoints or video and comment on them through audio, text or video and invite others to also contribute (if you want) Here students are studying cartoons/animation – Marissa has videoed a comment, using her webcam, on Coyote Road runner and if we click on anyone on the side would hear/see their comment.
  • You can use audio to make a comment – There are lovely comments giving feedback on this very special painting 
  • You can type a comment on a voicethread… so each person on the side of the screen has made some comment on this image… They choose how to do their comment – whether text, voice, or video. You can always delete your own comment. In this slide we can see it from the voicethread owner’s perspective… they can hide (using the curtains) or remove altogether with the bin. You can doodle on the screen – talk about many and varied topics. History perhaps
  • You can stop and start a voicethread using the play button under the Comment You can manouvre through Voicethreads via the left and right arrows or select the collection of 4 images to see all the slides to comment on.
  • When you write a comment you can always delete your own comment.
  • You can click and drag – the slide you are focused on is surrounded by yellow and you can add titles/links or even replace

  • I am engaged in an Aboriginal Language course where I am the technical support. We use Voicethread to hear correct pronunciation by the Aboriginal language teacher and then students record responses. The teacher records all the words and sample sentence on an MP3 recorder... I then edit (using Audacity) and then upload the sound files using my Voicethread log in and using the teacher's identity.
  • You receive alerts when postings are made... When you log into Voicethread you see alerts on those voicethreads which have been added to. Individual voicethreads enable you to see which posts you haven’t seen.
  • You can manage programs – who can see it? Public or private Whether others can comment or not Whether you moderate the comment. When someone has posted you can choose to have the comment appear to others or not.
  • To comment on another voicethread – no cost You can build 3 voicethreads for free I purchased a pro account There are a variety of package deals
