Voice Thread

Benefits to online students
  • Increases their sense of being part of a community (a significant barrier for online success).
  • Improves the sense that the teachers are present in their learning experience.
  • Students enjoy having options for commenting (text, audio, phone-audio, video).
  • VoiceThread improves student-student and student-teacher communication and reduces the amount of "hurt feelings", as opposed to the usual bulletin-board format, because the human voice eliminates misinterpretations of text-based comments.
