Creating a VoiceThread basically includes three steps: Add visuals, record a comment (also known as narration) and share it. 

Step 1 - Add visuals

Upload Option Description
My Computer
Choose this to upload a file that is saved to your computer. Files like PowerPoint slides, PDFs, images and videos will work. Please note: no single file can be over 100 mb for faculty and staff and 25 mb for students. For more information on what types of files you can upload to VoiceThread, visit VoiceThread's support web site.
Media Sources Search and use photos from Flickr, your Facebook account, other VoiceThreads you created or from the 700,000 images from the New York Public Library. If you don't have presentation slides, this is a great way to find images to support your presentation.
URL If you know the exact web address for a photo or image you can paste it here. Please note: This currently does not work for YouTube videos.
My Webcam Choose this option to record full screen video to include in your VoiceThread. This is a great option if you want to record video without slides or images to support your presentation. 

Once you have your visuals uploaded, you can re-arrange them by clicking on a slide and dragging it to the desired position.

Click on "(Add a title and description)" and enter a relevant title and description. Click "Save."
