Another semester has come and gone, and Summer courses are already well underway! Let’s take a moment to look back on another successful semester here at Carolina.
Before we dive into numbers, we wanted to say a quick thanks to the featured UNC students in the current photo on the Sakai gateway page!

What is VoiceThread, you might ask? Think of this tool as a set of slides of images, documents, videos, PowerPoint slides, or really anything to be shared online. Your collaborators can post comments on your VoiceThreads, adding to a rich discussion around your shared media!

Do you have videos you need to share privately with your students? Consider using Warpwire, the video-streaming service available directly in your Sakai course site. You can add videos through the Warpwire tool or just use the Warpwire plug-in in the text editor to essentially stream videos in any part of your Sakai site!
