George Haines (VoiceThread)
Creating engaging online spaces is not easy. In many discussion-board based courses, students feel isolated and disconnected from their instructors and classmates. VoiceThread can bridge this gap in learning interactions by providing a space for asynchronous conversations using video, audio, and text within the Blackboard environment.
In this workshop, educators will learn how to establish a social presence and connect with their students using VoiceThread. We will cover all of the basic VoiceThread features, demonstrate how everything works in Blackboard, showcase a variety of examples from actual courses, and discuss how VoiceThread can improve course satisfaction and student learning. We will have an open Q&A throughout the workshop.
