Voice Thread logo

VoiceThread is a web-based collaboration tool that allows users to share a collection of documents, images, audio, videos, and many other types of media for discussion. Collaborators discuss the shared content asynchronously by leaving comments using a microphone, webcam, text, telephone, or audio file upload. While making comments, collaborators can flip through the shared media and annotate it as they narrate.

"Voice Thread bridges the gap between real-time discussions and standard video lectures or online presentations. This makes Voice Thread the platform for teaching, learning, training, and collaborating, on-demand" (VoiceThread, 2016 - from their website).

VoiceThread integrates seamlessly into Canvas and can be used to enhance discussions in online and blended courses. Users can access VoiceThread directly through Canvas without creating separate credentials. Instructors can create discussion assignments which can be graded from VoiceThread. The grades assigned in VoiceThread are automatically imported into the Canvas gradebook.

Learn how to use VoiceThread in your Canvas course.
