VoiceThreads are hosted free of charge at VoiceThread.com and can be embedded in blogs, wikis, and other types of Web sites. A VoiceThread is quick and easy to create, has plenty of space for numerous images and commentaries, and can be accessed by any Internet-enabled computer.
A VoiceThread can also be used to create a video tutorial. You can use the pen tool to draw lines and arrows on an image in real time as you are speaking. "There are plenty of exciting educational possibilities with VoiceThread, especially in the humanities, fine arts, and foreign languages. In humanities classrooms students can analyze and comment on historically significant photographs and create virtual tours of places or events they are studying. English students can record their own poetry or short story and add evocative images. Photography and Drawing students can present their work and explain their techniques and motivations; students and teachers can then leave commentaries. Foreign language students can upload pictures from a trip and then explain their voyage in the language they are studying." (Tom Daccord)
