VoiceThread for Encouraging and Assessing Communication (30 min. Webinar)

VoiceThread is a wonderful tool that allows students to exercise their listening and speaking skills and practice peer collaboration by creating online “conversations”. VoiceThread also has benefits for instructors, as it is a fast and easy way to give personalized audio assessment on assignments.

In this webinar, we will discuss the basics of VoiceThread for creating audio journals and assignments that integrate VoiceThread with other websites such as YouTube. If you would like more opportunities for oral communications in your courses, this is a great session for you.

Sherrie Smith, a Lecturer at the English Language Training Institute, will lead the session. She received her Master’s degree in English at UNC Charlotte. Her professional interests include literacy for English language learners and utilizing technology to increase student engagement.

NOTE: This Webinar will be held online using the University's Web conferencing system, Centra. You will need access to the Internet, and a microphone if you want to speak. See Centra's technical requirements on our Centra Resources page.
