Post 24: VoiceThread

VoiceThread is a free, simple, powerful Web2.0 tool. One can upload images and create an audio narrative to describe each image. The result is an impressive annotated slideshow.

Example: imagine posting several photographs of a World War II veteran in action, then having this person annotate (speak) while viewing the photos! Or imagine a student posting photographs or scanning images of a project then speaking about each picture.

VoiceThread is as simple as Click/Upload images, documents, or presentations and simply annotate (record) over the top.

After recording one can share and publish the results. Just copy the URL or the Embedded Coding into an Email, Blog, or Webpage.

Sample #1: Learning about Acute Angles the fun way. Also introduces a web-based whiteboard called Scribbler.

Sample #2: Old photographs uploaded and narrated over the top using VoiceThread.
