May 12, 2023 VoiceThread update

On May 12, 2023, Missouri Online will be upgrading the connection between VoiceThread and Canvas. There will be no impact to current content, assignments or work in progress.

There are two major benefits to upgrading the connection;

  • Content & Assignment Copies: You will no longer have to recreate your VoiceThread links when copying course content from one Canvas site to another. VoiceThreads, including those in assignments, are copied over without any student content while instructor content is retained.
    NOTE:  We suggest you do not complete your Canvas course content copies until after the update has occurred. Waiting until after the update will eliminate the need to recreate your VoiceThread links.
  • Roster sync: Students will automatically show up in your course membership and assignment grader. Students will no longer need to click on a VoiceThread link in your course to activate their membership in your course.

There are a few differences in both look and feel and process. Be on the lookout for new documentation on Teaching Tools for information on these fairly minor changes. Please feel free to respond to this email and let the Academic Technology team know if you have any questions.
