VoiceThread is a software that allows you and your students to record or post photos, videos, or audio. After something is recorded or posted, the media can be shared with you or with the larger class to facilitate discussion, share information or experiences, or allow for graded speaking assignments. Gina Donovan will lead a workshop with demonstrations of the VoiceThread software in Blackboard, adding media to a course, and sharing that media with classmates.

Light refreshments will be served.
