VoiceThread is the latest tool in Blackboard that is designed to make creating, sharing, and commenting on presentations and projects easier. This tool is simple to use and will make it much easier to collaborate on presentations.
There are multiple forms of commenting and contributing to a project. You can type comments, upload separate comments, record audio and video comments and even add a comment using a phone line. VoiceThread can also be used to create online lectures by associating PowerPoint presentations or other documents with a lecture recording. VoiceThread is a great tool to encourage collaborations among students, and is more lightweight and much easier to use than previous tools.
