Getting Started with Voicethread
Instructors use Voicethread in one of three ways: sharing a weekly update with you, delivering a lecture or using voicethread as a assignment. When using as an assignment, there are four distinct assignments that an instructor can give you:
Accessing a Voicethread from within a Blackboard Course
From within the course, locate the Rocket icon and click the accompanying link. A new tab will open and the Voicethread (or Voicethread assigment with instructions) will appear.
Completing a Voicethread Assignment
3. You can create your Voicethread assignment using any of the tools provided. For more information on how specifically to do that, visit the main Voicethread page. If you had already created a Voicethread and see the thread you want to submit, you can click it once to select it. If you do NOT see your thread there, and cannot locate it by searching in the search box, it was most likely created in some other VT account. You will then have to use the "Add a VoiceThread by share link or id" blue hyperlink at the bottom of the thumbnail list. Here, you will be able to paste in the Share Link to any Voicethread that is shareable.
4. When your Voicethread is complete, click Submit.
Note: There is an option to share your submission with the class. If the instructor requires this, please check the box indicating that you wish to share your presentation with the rest of the class.
5. You will receive a confirmation message that your assignment has been submitted. At that point, you can close the window.
Click the Start Assignment button on the right. Record the required number of comments. If your instructor has asked you to add slides, upload the required number of slides to complete the assignment.
Once you’ve met the requirements, you’ll see a blue check mark next to the to-do list on the right. Click Submit to complete your assignment.
