Ed.VoiceThread sign-in for K-12 students

If you have a K-12 license, you can assign your students VoiceThread usernames (fictitious email addresses) instead of using valid addresses (learn more here). In order to access the app with those usernames, they just need to search for your license by title or domain first. Here are the steps they can follow:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap “Find my Institution”.
  3. Enter the title you've given your license or your custom domain. Either one will pull up your license. Tip: if your domain is myschool.ed.voicethread.com, enter “myschool.ed” to search by domain.
  4. When you see the correct license title, tap on it in the list.
  5. Tap “Sign in”.
  6. Enter their username and password.
  7. Tap “Sign in”.
