NBC Learn and VoiceThread are now integrated with OAKS!

VoiceThread Integration

VoiceThread is an online digital storytelling program that allows users to upload pictures or presentations then add a voice or video recording as commentary. The College has recently procured a university site license that is now integrated with OAKS. This license brings with it several benefits:

  • All users can now access VoiceThread directly from within OAKS.
  • Faculty and students will be given upgraded accounts which will remove the 5 VoiceThread restriction of the free version.
  • Users will receive an unlimited number of export credits.
  • Users will receive an unlimited number of phone commenting minutes.

 

To learn more about VoiceThread, please visit the VoiceThread Tutorial on the TLT Tutorials and Apps blog.

VoiceThread can be easily accessed through any OAKS course homepage by clicking on the “Access VoiceThread for this Course” link from the Multimedia Resources widget.

NBC Learn Integration

NBC Learn is a digital media library resource created by NBC to which the College now has a subscription. NBC Learn has archived more than 12,000 stories from NBC media outlets and are available for viewing by faculty, staff, and students at the College.

NBC Learn is also available in two versions:

  • NBC Learn Higher Ed: media curated for use in a higher ed environment.
  • NBC Learn K12: media curated for use in a K12 environment and is tied to state standards. In some cases lesson plans are also attached.

To learn more about NBC Learn, please visit the NBC Learn Tutorial on the TLT Tutorials and Apps blog.
