With VoiceThread, group conversations are collected and shared in one place from anywhere in the world. All with no software to install.
A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways – using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Share a VoiceThread with friends, students, and colleagues for them to record comments too.
Users can doodle while commenting, use multiple identities, and pick which comments are shown through moderation. VoiceThreads can even be embedded to show and receive comments on other websites and exported to MP3 players or DVDs to play as archival movies.

There is a 30 day free trial once set up is complete so the customer can see how they like the product before paying for it. No one, no matter what tool it is, will pay money for a product when they don’t even know what it does.
VoiceThread is very helpful in education. It provides a new, fun, interactive way for students to present. It also is helpful in a class room setting because other students and teachers can comment on the presentation using a voice comment, a video, or a text. This way student can edit each other’s presentation in an organized way.
In the business world VoiceThread can help pull in a customer or target audience by the different ways of presentation. It’s a creative way to get the point across without losing the audience in everything that’s going on. You can also browse other peoples VoiceThreads for information on a project or assignment that’s needed.
I like using Voice Thread as a mode for book reports. Students can find the uploaded book cover, then post comments about what they read. It's interactive and easy to use.
As an elementary teacher, I like to use VoiceThread as a class project by creating or taking pictures, uploading them, then asking each student to talk or write about the images. Each child is commenting on the same image, therefore creating a collaborative collection of responses. In higher level grades, VoiceThread can used to ask students to comment on a piece of writing or a Power Point presentation.
I highly recommend adding VoiceThread to your bag of teaching tools. For the price, it is a great way to get unify your class and get your students talking!
