voicethread

VoiceThread is a web based platform that enables faculty and students to collaborate in a dialog by sharing and commenting on documents, videos, images, and text.
This is a unique tool that allows a faculty member to post a picture and then ask students to interpret what they see. Whether the response is for a speech assignment, practicing a foreign language, interpreting a piece of art, assessing the architecture of something portrayed in an image or discussing engineering anomalies or accomplishments. Voice Thread allows for a unique way for everyone to share information.
