VoiceThread is a tool for asynchronous audio and video communication. Instructors are able to create VoiceThreads by uploading content such as word documents, videos, images or presentations. They can then comment and annotate the content for the students to see. Students are then able to add video, audio or text comments on the content. The replies can be threaded like a forum and can be moderated by the instructor.
