Blackboard VoiceThread for Students

VoiceThread is a presentation and collaboration tool that is available in Blackboard. Students can create their own 'VoiceThreads' – multi-media presentations with images, documents, and videos. Then other students (and instructors) can navigate the slides and leave comments at any point in the presentation using voice, text, audio file, or video recordings. The new VoiceThread assignments are a major overhaul and redesign of the entire experience. Some of the new features include:

  • A streamlined interface
  • More control for instructors
  • Editable assignments
  • A "student gallery" where students can easily see classmates' VoiceThreads
  • Better feedback for students

To learn more about the VoiceThread assignment tool, please see the student help site or watch the videos below (one for each type of VT assignment).

If your assignment looks different from the ones demonstrated below, that may mean that the it was created using the legacy version of VoiceThread. For video tutorials and step-by-step instructions, please visit the student help page, select your assignment type, and scroll down to the 'Legacy VoiceThread' section.
