What is VoiceThread?

VoiceThread is a multimedia collaboration tool that allows participants to create, share, and comment on images, videos, audio files, documents, PDFs and PowerPoints.

Montclair State University has a VoiceThread site license.  Canvas creates the user account automatically and VoiceThread users can also navigate to montclair.voicethread.com As an instructor, you can create VoiceThreads in your Canvas course in the modules area or as an assignment. It is already set up as an external tool, so you won’t need to add any consumer key.
