Current Support Operations

Please be aware that, due to the current SEIU Local 73 strike, support response times will be slower than normal. Thank you for your understanding.

Use VoiceThread

VoiceThread is an interactive collaboration tool available in Blackboard that can be used to encourage student discussion and build community in asynchronous learning settings.

Online discussion boards are usually text-based and can sometimes limit the types of conversations in online learning environments, whereas VoiceThread allows instructors to create multimedia content and generate a conversation around it using text, audio, and video. The conversations are not live; they take place whenever and wherever it's convenient for students to participate.
