  • Badge-powered flexible learning – Passport guides students through tasks by providing a framework to submit documents, share links, complete quizzes, or gather approvals. Instructors can follow each student’s progress and connect badges with course objectives.
  • Badge builder – With the system’s badge-builder tool, instructors can select different styles, colors, icons and fonts for each badge, or upload their own images. They also can set expiration dates for challenges, or reset tasks when a student’s first attempt is not satisfactory.
  • Scorecard – Achievements — such as essays, online discussions, blog posts and podcasts, to name a few — can then be translated into a numeric-based evaluation system for grading purposes.

Thinking about How to Use VoiceThread

VoiceThread is a web-based application that allows you to place collections of media like images, videos, documents, and presentations at the center of an asynchronous conversation.

A VoiceThread allows people to have conversations and to make comments using any mix of text, a microphone, a web cam, a telephone, or uploaded audio file.
