Today's Generation Z students rely on video and audio in their daily lives. Now there's a way you can bring this element into your teaching through VoiceThread, a multimedia tool that allows for interactive discussions within the online classroom. This demonstration will show how teachers and students can use VoiceThread for more meaningful discussions, allowing all participants to express their thoughts and responses using video/audio on a defined topic. Imagine the possibilities of using VoiceThread instead of the traditional discussion board or forum. Participants will be introduced to VoiceThread and how to use the VoiceThread module within Blackboard.
