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 A recorded version of the "New VoiceThread" workshop has been archived for your convenience.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.
