How to comment

Recording a comment on a VoiceThread is quick and easy, and you don’t need any equipment that is not already built into your mobile device. To begin, navigate to the slide on which you want to comment, and tap the comment button at the bottom of the VoiceThread.

You can leave a comment in:

Audio

After you’ve selected the microphone button to record an audio comment, you’ll see a countdown. When that countdown gets to 0, begin recording your comment. Navigate from one slide to the next to create an M/5 comment, and use the Doodler to annotate. Once you’re done, tap the “stop recording”, and tap “Save” to finalize your comment. If you’d prefer to discard it and try again, tap “cancel”.

Video

After you’ve selected the camera button to record a video comment, you’ll see a countdown. When that countdown gets to 0, you’ll see yourself in a box on the screen and can begin recording your comment. Navigate from one slide to the next to create an M/5 comment, and use the Doodler to annotate. Once you’re done, tap the “stop recording” button, and tap “Save” to finalize your comment. If you’d prefer to discard it and try again, tap “cancel”.

Note that you need to have a mobile device with a camera in order to record a video comment.
