Frequently Asked Questions

VoiceThread is an application that runs inside your web browser, so there is no software to download, install, or update.  VoiceThread allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of a conversation. These conversations are not live; they take place whenever and wherever it's convenient for people to participate. A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments using any mix of text, a microphone, a webcam, a telephone, or uploading an audio file.

Educators use VoiceThread for many different projects, from extending and documenting classroom conversations; digital student-portfolios; and language practice, to creating on-line lectures and tutoring; virtual class spaces; and professional-development training, just to name a few.
