VoiceThread Curious?

Stony Brook University has access to a large collection of lessons at Lynda.com. I was looking inside their offerings today, and found some information about VoiceThread.

VoiceThread is often mentioned as a great supplemental tool for online teaching and active learning – so I thought I would share a link to the video here:
