OLC Partners with VoiceThread for ET4Online’s Discovery Sessions


Today, I was part of an exciting conference call with the Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan-C) and VoiceThread.  The two organizations have established an exciting partnership for the 8th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning (ET4Online) Symposium 2015!

The partnership will connect face-to-face ET4Online Discovery Session presenters with virtual conference attendees (and beyond).  Simply by uploading a PDF of one’s Powerpoint or Keynote presentation into VoiceThread and recording  personalized voice comments to expand upon each slide, each Discovery Session presenter will also create an asynchronous voice conversation about their session topic.  VoiceThreads are interactive, providing an opportunity for virtual attendees to view and ask questions on any slide in a VoiceThread.

But that’s not all … each ET4Online 2015 Discovery Session presenter will also receive:

  • A complimentary 1-year Higher Ed Single Instructor license. This is a $99 value. Wow!
  • The opportunity to be part of a cutting-edge VoiceThread feature (not even released yet!) that will facilitate the curation of a group of VoiceThreads in an embeddable content frame.

The Call for Proposals for ET4Online 2015 closes December 1, 2014.
