Getting set up for the next semester by Copying VoiceThreads into your next semester's course site

NOTE:  As of May 13, 2023 you do not need to do this anymore.  All VoiceThread links will automatically update in your course site when you copy in content from a previous semester.

  1. Go to VoiceThread via a VoiceThread link in your current course to access the VT Home VoiceThread area.
  2. Make a COPY of each VoiceThread you would like to use in the future semester.  Make sure that you name the new VoiceThreads with the future semester in the title.
    (Ex. SP2019 Week 1 VoiceThread) (This will avoid confusion — it is best practice always to put the semester first in any VoiceThread title). Copying the VoiceThreads ensures that previous comments by students do not get moved to the future semester. In Settings, you can choose which, if any, comments you'd like to copy.

  3. RE-LINK your VoiceThreads in your future course site.
    To do this, you will need to DELETE the existing VoiceThread links in your new future semester's course site as these links are now pointing to the wrong (the previous semester's) VoiceThread. Add in your new Individual, Course View, VT Home links into your future semester's course site.

Note: You do not need to do this for Assignment links. All of the student submissions and comments will be removed from your assignments automatically when you import your course content into your next semester's course site.
