VoiceThread: A Collaborative, Learner Centered Tool

VoiceThread is a learning tool that holds essentially any type of media (presentations, images, documents, audio, video and more). VoiceThread can be used to add interaction and active learning to any course, whether face to face, blended or online. VoiceThread is an easy way to add audio to presentations.

Use VoiceThread if you looking for a tool that will help you create learning that is:

  • Learner centered – Learning begins with what the learner contributes.
  • Knowledge-Centered – focused on what is taught, why it is taught, and what competence or mastery looks like.
