When creating VoiceThreads, please keep the following in mind:

Uploading or Importing Media


Once you have created your VoiceThread, you will be prompted to upload or import media to create your VoiceThread slides. There are two ways to add files from your computer to a VoiceThread:

  • Drag your files from your computer and drop them onto the Create page 
  • Click on Add Media and select My Computer. Select your files.


The files will upload and process, which may take several minutes. As soon as they are ready you will see them as thumbnails on your Create page.


While your VoiceThread is processing, the Thread Settings box will pop up. Enter a title for your VoiceThread and (optional) description and tags.


For more information on uploading files see:


VoiceThread allows you to upload multiple types of files, including images, videos, presentations, and more. For more information on the file types that work best with VoiceThread, see File Types Accepted.



Commenting


Once you have uploaded your media you may add a comment. Comments may be audio, video, or text. For more information and instructions, see Commenting on VoiceThreads.
