New VoiceThread Update Coming to All Users on June 30, 2024

We are pleased to announce that VoiceThread is undergoing a platform-wide update that introduces an enhanced user interface and additional new features. You can opt into the New VoiceThread at any time from now until June 30, 2024 by changing your individual account setting.

On June 30, 2024, the new VoiceThread will automatically replace the existing interface for all users.

The new VoiceThread features an updated user interface and a number of additional new features, including the ability to jump to another slide during comments, multi-slide commenting, zooming and panning while making an audio or video comment, and more.

Faculty: Informational Workshops from VoiceThread (online)

VoiceThread regularly hosts interactive, hands-on online workshops where faculty can learn and ask questions. June's offerings include:

  • Tuesday, June 18, 10a Pacific Time | New VoiceThread: simpler, more accessible, and more powerful | RSVP 
  • Tuesday, June 25, 10a Pacific Time | Using VoiceThread in Moodle | RSVP

Unable to attend these sessions? A recorded version of the "New VoiceThread" workshop has been archived for your convenience. Please note that the "New VoiceThread" workshop highlights the changes from the legacy version of VT and does not go over basics such as how to create a VoiceThread presentation.

Questions?

More information can be found on VoiceThread's website and, as always, please feel free to contact Help Desk with any questions or concerns.

Looking for your Moodle course?

by Nancy Chan -

For new students, please read through this post to help you find your classes in Moodle. Be sure to read the note at the bottom about the beginning of the semester!

If you are unable to locate your course under My Courses, try changing the view filter on your Course Overview (located on the My Courses page) to "all." Another way is to use the filter to view your past, in-progress, or future courses. If you have many classes, there may be an arrow button near the bottom of the screen. Click on the arrow button to view more courses.

Alternatively, you can find a list of all of your courses by going to your profile photo in the upper-right and using the drop-down menu to get to your Profile.

If you used to have access to a course, but it seems to have disappeared, it has most likely changed status. This can happen, especially if the course is about to start or has recently ended. You should be able to locate it by adjusting your Course Overview filter or going to your Moodle profile.

If you are still unable to locate your course after trying these two methods, contact the Help Desk!

Important note about the beginning of each semester for students:

While there is an official "first day" of the semester on the CCA Academic Calendar, some Moodle courses may not be available to students until closer to the first session of the class (for example, the first day of the semester is on a Tuesday, but if a class is scheduled to meet on Monday each week, the Moodle course may not be available until closer to the following Monday). Some teachers may also choose not to use Moodle for their course - please check with your instructor and/or the course syllabus listed on Portal for more information.
