What is VoiceThread?

VoiceThread is a web-based tool that allows asynchronous and ongoing digital communication among participants using text, audio, or video.

The multi-modality features of VoiceThread accommodate diverse learning styles and increase social presence. It is an easy-to-use tool and has been used to support the learning process in an engaging and fun way.
