Do you think this is in the works for Blackboard as well?

Michelle Pacansky-Brock said...

No. Moodle is open source so the customization is free and open for any developer to participate in. Blackboard is proprietary -- totally different picture.

I love VoiceThread but yet generally using it for testing topic, now planning to use it for class and hope that it does work out.
