On this page, I have published the class presentations I submitted to the University of Arizona’s APCV320 – Computational Thinking and Doing class using VoiceThread.
The APCV320 instructions for VoiceThread assignments required that we submit our entire VoiceThread as a single slide. In order to accomplish this, I used Microsoft PowerPoint. As I have a MacBook Pro (with a front facing camera), I used QuickTime Player to record my face while I simultaneously recorded the PowerPoint presentation on the screen. Doing this allowed me to also record sound effects I wished to put in my presentations.
To keep the video of my face on top of the PowerPoint presentation, I set the window that had the camera feed of my face “on top” of all other windows. Then, I displayed the PowerPoint presentation in “Presenter View“, which allowed the window frame that included my face to be on top, and I only selected the screen area that included the content I wished to use for the presentation in QuickTime Player. Finally, I saved it as a .mov then uploaded the video as a single file in VoiceThread (so it only takes up one slide).
