Link & Embed Instructions
There are two ways to add VoiceThread to your course. You may choose "Course View" or "MyVoice" through the Build Content Menu in Blackboard.

Course View in VoiceThread
Course View in VoiceThread will link your students to a course group area in the VoiceThread website. Here, an instructor can share a pre-made VoiceThread to use as an assignment for students to participate in as a group. Students can participate in the VoiceThread using the comment tools, but do not have access to edit to add pictures or documents. In this feature students can create a new VoiceThread by clicking the MyVoice link and following the create instructions. If they wanted to share this with the course, they can use the sharing features to do so.
The MyVoice option will link students to their own VoiceThread account where they can select the course link and access instructor created and shared VoiceThreads, and/or create their own projects in VoiceThread and share them with the course to present to the class.
