Module #4 Discussion Question: Use Voicethread and talk about a synchronous tool you have used.

Posted in Module #4, MVCR Postings, Tech Tools at 3:30 am by marylan2

 For this activity I used the Voice thread option.  I spoke about a tool we use here called Dabbleboard.  This tool has a whiteboard and a chat area and with the add-on you actually have video chat with the instructor.  One of our instructors use it for his online office hours. He created a session and posted the session number, just like we used to post to the voicethread, and the students login there to communicate with the instructor.

Our tutoring department asked for a tool to provide online tutoring and demonstrated Dabbleboard for that purpose. 

We had to get our network people to give us access through the college firewall to use Dabbleboard.  We also had to make sure everyone had the appropriate equipment to use this tool.  But, it works like a charm.

If you are interested, you may want to check out Dabbleboard at: http://www.dabbleboard.com.

I think I forgot to mention that this is a free tool.  Let me know what you think.
