Are you looking for an online presentation tool that provides natural interactions between instructors and students? VoiceThread is a totally web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of an asynchronous conversation. A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments using any mix of text, a microphone, a web cam, a telephone, or uploaded audio file. VoiceThread runs inside your web browser, so there is no software to download, install, or update. VoiceThread also enables students to create content, where they can present and defend their work before experts and peers. In this 60-minute, hands-on presentation, well provide step-by-step instruction and creating and sharing VoiceThreads, and well provide examples and best practices so that you can start using the tool effectively in your course.
