Voice Thread Turns an Educational Corner

Today, Voice Thread is launching a new service that’s intended to solve some of the difficult accessibility issues of using VoiceThread in the classroom, as well as to create a place for students to work independently and develop their own portfolio of work. This new community called Ed.VoiceThread, is designed to allow simple, safe, and rich collaboration around multimedia within a secure environment. Built upon a foundation of accountability, all of the community’s users are known users, responsible for their content and behavior. Access is restricted to K-12 educators, students and administrators, and all content is created or vetted exclusively by registered members of the community.

Here’s a link to a more detailed description of the service

Also, here is a link to two podcasts where  the service is discussed and why it was developed:
