On March 14th, VoiceThread at PennState increased the storage capacity for Basic accounts from 250MB to 1GB.
All Penn State students are default Basic account users upon accessing their VoiceThread at PennState instance. While the original agreement was to provide Penn State Basic accounts with 250 MB of storage per user, the first two months of operation of this service provided enough feedback to indicate that students would need more storage capability for their work in VoiceThread.
Single Comment Limit Lifted to 1 Hour
In addition to the increased storage, VoiceThread has also increased the single comment time limit to 1 hour. Prior to this, a single comment could be a maximum of 10 minutes. Because of the popularity of the M5 Commenting feature, VoiceThread has pushed out the single comment limit to one full hour.
