Welcome to VoiceThread at Penn State
For an introduction to VoiceThread, watch the Simply Speaking video above.
What is VoiceThread?
VoiceThread is a totally web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of an asynchronous conversation. A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments using any mix of text, a microphone, a web cam, a telephone, or uploaded audio file. VoiceThread runs inside your web browser, so there is no software to download, install, or update. To learn more, see Teaching and Learning with Technology's white paper on VoiceThread.
