A VoiceThread can be created via www.voicethread.com and then shared via Canvas.
Option 1: Recording your VoiceThread by using your computer’s webcam
Click on the Webcam Video option to start recording your video journal entry. Whenever you click Webcam Video, VoiceThread will automatically start recording your audio and video. Some browsers may ask you to allow VoiceThread to start recording.
Option 2: Uploading your video from your computer
If you recorded your entry by using any other device (i.e., your phone, tablet, camera, etc.) and saved it to your computer, you may upload that particular video by clicking on the My Computer option. Depending on the size, length, and the quality of your existing video, VoiceThread may take some time to render your video – this is normal.
If you went back to Home page after creating/recording your VoiceThread, don’t panic, you can still retrieve the link. In this case you have two options:
Option 1: Hover over the VoiceThread
If your homepage displays your VoiceThreads as thumbnails, bring your mouse over the VoiceThread. You will see that an arrow will appear on the VoiceThread. Click on it to retrieve the link. Do not forget to allow anyone to view and comment options are checked before copying the link. If the homepage displays your VoiceThreads in a list format, again, hover over the VoiceThread to display share option.
Option 2: Click on the VoiceThread
Click on the VoiceThread as if you would like to watch it. Once it starts playing and/or it is displayed on the screen, look for the title of the VoiceThread in the upper left corner on the screen and click on it. Choose the Share option from the drop down menu to retrieve the link. Do not forget to allow anyone to view and comment options are checked before copying the link.
