If you go into the Manager tools and click Settings > Security and Restrictions, you can uncheck the box that allows students to start private conversations.

How do I remove “private commenting” as an option? It says, “To disable private commenting for your students, have your VoiceThread Administrator adjust this preference in your Manager Settings.” But there is nothing in my “Manager Settings.” I thought I was the Admin. for a ProAccount.

Thanks,

Yes, you can add a “CourseView” link and students can see all of the threads shared with the course.

That is something we are considering adding in the future. Until then, we recommend keeping individual comments to a minute or less.

I’m not sure where VoiceThread takes suggestions for future improvements, so I will float this here.
One thing that would be nice is to provide an option to speed up playback for comments to 1.5x or 2x. When we have very long voice and/or video comments, this would be extremely helpful.

Thank you.

I was wondering if there was a way when using the Canvas integrated Assignment builder feature, after creating the VoiceThread and then submitting and “Sharing with the Class”, if there was a way VoiceThread could take you back to the Group (or class) as a whole to view and comment on the rest of the class submissions rather than just submitting and sharing with the class and not having a next step for the students to access the rest of the class submissions to comment on or view their peers?

Comment on Using VoiceThread as an Ice Breaker Assignment by Megan Bailey https://wp.voicethread.com/2016/06/14/using-voicethread-as-an-ice-breaker-assignment/#comment-1734 Mon, 23 Jan 2017 04:13:29 +0000 http://wp.voicethread.com/?p=5989#comment-1734 I love this idea…Im in workforce development in CA. I think that VT can really open doors to employment by being used in our AJCC’s. Assignments that job seekers can do on their schedule vs. Standardized 9-5 opertions of job centers.

They don’t need edit access to reply. If you enable threaded commenting in your playback settings, they can reply to each other’s comments.
