This workshop will introduce VoiceThread, a versatile tool integrated into D2L that can be used to set up voice- and video-enabled discussions, create interactive lectures where students can comment and ask questions, and allow students to record their own presentations online and share them with the class.
In the first hour, participants will see various use cases pulled from several disciplines and see a full tutorial for creating a VoiceThread and integrating it into D2L.
In the second hour, participants will practice the steps for creating their own VoiceThread presentations. You are encouraged to bring a PowerPoint or similar file to make this activity more meaningful.
Note: recent DOTS alumni have likely seen large segments of this presentation before, but you are encouraged to attend if you'd like a refresher or want the opportunity to ask more advanced questions.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Identify the primary use cases for VoiceThread
• Recall the steps for setting up a VoiceThread link in D2L and re-using it from quarter to quarter
• Create a video discussion activity incorporated incorporated into D2L
• Create an interactive narrated lecture incorporated into D2L
• Create a space for students to create and share narrated PowerPoints online
