Faculty: want to learn how to have your students create virtual presentations or conduct oral or video discussions? Look no further than VoiceThread! On Friday, October 28, at 12:30pm VoiceThread will be conducting a customized training for USD faculty. In this online session, participants will learn the basic features of VoiceThread. An expert VoiceThread trainer will share a variety of examples from real courses and show you how VoiceThread works in the Blackboard environment.
What if a student is waitlisted and still needs access to course materials? Or you are collaborating with a user who is not at USD and s/he needs access to course content? Faculty users in Blackboard can issue a Pass!
Passes allow faculty to share a file, folder, or entire course worth of content to any user. Passes generate a shareable URL that can be set to expire on any date.
Are you ready to use VoiceThread this year? We can help you master the basic features with these hands-on workshops.
