The ELT team is proud to announce that VoiceThread is now available in OWL. Voicethread allows instructors to present course material, such as documents, images, and videos, with the added ability to annotate the content as well as provide audio and video commentary. Students are able to participate by creating and sharing their own content. The instructor and other students can then comment on the material.

The tool was piloted through the Teaching Support Centre in 2015 with great success. VoiceThread enables several pedagogical activities including asynchronous learning/lecture, threaded discussions, and modern language practice.

If you are interested in using VoiceThread you can add it to your course in OWL using the following steps:

  1. Log into OWL
  2. Navigate to your course site
  3. Click to Site Info
  4. Click Edit Tools
  5. Expand the Plugin Tools menu at the bottom of the page
  6. Select VoiceThread
