Voicethread is hard to describe. It is simultaneously an online PPT presentation and a discussion board. Imagine having students comment on each slide as you present it, but their comments appear on the outer edges of the screen. The comments can be audio, video or text. Once you have that image in your mind, you can then imagine that this tool can be used for a variety of purposes. You could narrate your PPTs and give students access to them outside of class. You could ask students to reply to a series of questions. Students could create online presentations that include audio, video, text and is narrated by them.   


Let's jump in and get started using Voicethread. What kind of person are you?
