VoiceThread is a collaborative tool that can facilitate asynchronous online discussion around multimedia.
Echo360 Universal Capture is a recording tool GW faculty can use to capture screencasts or lecture videos from their personal device. The resulting capture video can be shared via Blackboard to your class roster.
