VoiceThread offers an alternative, asynchronous interface for professors to present content and for students to submit their work and comment on other's submissions.
Submissions can be in various formats about a media text (e.g. text, image, video, Word file, PowerPoint file).
Users can use markup tools.
VoiceThread is integrated with Learn@Seneca.
Seneca has a licence for this tool.
VoiceThread can be added to Learn@Seneca via the build content tab.
Sometimes, VoiceThreads appear to disappear when accessing submitted assignments via Blackboard. If that happens, try logging into the VoiceThread homepage and you may see the "missing" VoiceThread there.
Although grading through VoiceThread's interface is possible, if you need to adjust a grade you will have to do so via Learn@Seneca's grade centre.
See the VoiceThread: A multimedia platform for engaging students in hybrid and online courses article in the Academic Newsletter.
