Join us to see how VoiceThread can transform the virtual classroom through fostering human connections. For over eight years, Curtis Izen, Senior Computer Information Associate at Baruch College and Adjunct Faculty with the CUNY SPS Online Business Program, has taught with VoiceThread, a tool that makes asynchronous conversations feel live and in-person.

By incorporating VoiceThread into various course components, Curtis has seen distant boundaries between students eliminated, a strong community element built, relationships among students both academically and professionally flourish, and an increased self-confidence in presentation skills among his students. And in the age of generative AI, VoiceThread interactions help to ensure authentic student work through the spoken word. Assessing students is pedagogically thorough.
