Creating a Group in VoiceThread

Creating and using groups is a useful way to securely share VoiceThread presentations with other users. Instructors can create groups that can be easily accessed by members of a class. Once added to the group, students can create and share their own VoiceThread presentations as well as comment on presentations created by other members of the group. 

  1. Once logged in to VoiceThread, click your account name/email address in the upper right hand corner and select ‘Groups and Contacts.’

           

2. Any previously created groups or contacts will appear.  Click the ‘Add Group’ button to create a new group.

        

3. Give the group a name and description (optional). Select a header image (optional). Click Create Group.

          

4. Click the ‘Group Sign-up Link’ button in the upper right corner. 

 

5. Copy the link and click ‘Done’ to close the window.  Paste the link into an email or website.  Anyone who clicks the link will be automatically added to the group and will have access to any VoiceThread presentations added to the group.

 

Note:  Users must have previously logged into VoiceThread with their JHED ID and password (http://jhu.voicethread.com) to be successfully added to the group.

 

          

6. From the Home page, you should now see the newly created group in the list of groups.
