1 VoiceThread:

2 With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. All with no software to install.

3 A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate pages and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too What is VoiceThread?

4 Users can doodle while commenting using the doodle tool. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies. (Payed version)

5 VoiceThread inspires collaboration and expression with 5 innovative ways to comment. Collect the voices of an entire group on a single page by computer microphone, telephone, text, audio file (MP3/WAV), and webcam. microphone Text through typing Video via webcam Audio file upload Telephone (not practical in NZ)

6 VoiceThread supports dozens of standard file formats. Whether it's home videos, business presentations, or vacation photos, VoiceThread is ready for your multimedia and the conversations they will inspire. VoiceThread supports PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (including Office 2007 formats), images, and videos. Store your photos someplace else? VoiceThread even imports photos from Flickr or the web. Media

7 With Doodling, you can draw on top of the media as you record your comment (using mic, webcam, or keyboard). VoiceThread's innovative Video Doodling feature allows you to control the playback of a video, while Doodling and commenting on specific video segments. VoiceThread Doodles are synced to your comment, showing viewers your thoughts in action. Doodling

8 VoiceThread makes embedding easy, allowing you to add interactive group discussions to any website. Simply copy and paste the embed code to your website and let the conversations begin. Whether it's feedback, critique, or group story-telling, collect it how, when, and where you want. Embedding

9 VoiceThread's Comment Moderation allows a VoiceThread creators and editors to pick which comments are shown to everyone else. So, an editor can easily choose the best 5 comments out of a selection of a 100 and turn a epic novel into a succinct short story. Moderation

10 One VoiceThread account can have many identities (commenting avatars) associated with it. A family, a class, or an interesting person can switch identities on-the-fly without having to sign in with a different account. Think 22 kids, 45 minutes, and a project to complete - and you'll understand the wonder of this feature. Identities

11 Any way you want it. VoiceThreads security comes in many forms, from private to public, and anywhere in between. Simple security settings allow creators to choose what the VoiceThread viewers can do. You can change these settings as often as you like. You can also easily create Groups of your friends, colleagues, or those you have common interests with, and have the Group's VoiceThreads shared and shown in one place (on your MyVoice page).

35 You can also edit further your VoiceThread at any time. VoiceThread has unlimited uses and your students can view and comment on their VoiceThreads at anytime whether from school or from their homes. The VoiceThreads can also be shared with friends and families and used for assessment purposes.
