Creating a VoiceThread Comment
Follow the steps below to make a comment on a VoiceThread presentation.
Place your mouse cursor over the first VoiceThread slide, and then click on the “Comment” button along the bottom of the slide.
VoiceThread offers five different ways to make a comment:
Audio comments via telephone
This option allows you to enter your phone number to have VoiceThread call you. When you pick up the phone, you can speak your comment and it will be posted to the VoiceThread as an audio comment for others to listen to. This is a great option for people who do not have a computer microphone.
Microphone & Webcam Comments
These options allows you to record video or audio comments. Most newer computers have a microphone built-in next to the webcam. If not, you can use a headset. The process of recording each comment is the same. The only difference is that microphone comments record audio, whereas video comments record both audio and video.
Click on the microphone or camera icon.
Note: Your instructor may disable certain types of comments if they want your comments to be in a certain format.
If your comment posted successfully, you will see your initials or avatar along the left side of the VoiceThread slide. When you click your avatar/initials, your comment will play.
