There are two ways to add VoiceThread to your Canvas course.   The first, and best practice, is to add the VoiceThread links via adding an External Tool.  The second, which we do not recommend, is adding it via Share links.  Using a Share link does not automatically authenticate students into VoiceThread.  To add VoiceThread to your course please follow the steps below.
