Embedding Voicethread into your Blog

I was playing around with Voicethread today following the Edinburgh Coffee Morning meeting which became a Voicethread - the guys at Voicethread have come up with the code which should enable Threads to be embedded in blogs which is cool.
You can embed your own Voicethread from the To Go box of your own Thread, however the code is needed to embed a public Thread, which is the second slide below. ( plus in the My Box on the right side bar should have the Voicethread Embed Code)



Thank You Voicethread you have a powerful tool here. Just one question from a teacher thinking about using this in a classroom, is there any form of moderation of Threads? I couldn't find a way to do this..... anybody know How To ??

" Hi, thanks for the review. Yes Voicethread has comment moderation, here's a quick tutorial, http://voicethread.com/view.php?b=718
It's allows you to really curate the commentary into the best conversation possible.
Thanks again,

Thanks also to John Pearce for his comment on the same issue :)

When you create a Voicethread set of photos you can decide to have premoderation of comments if you like and photo albums can be private, shared with certain people or completely shared and open. Very cool.

Hi Paul,

I wondered about Voicethread comment moderation myself and got this nice reply from Steve Muth in my Inbox the nest day.

Hi John,


Yes, if you are the owner/creator, or co-editor, of a voicethread, you can turn comment moderation on,(in the options window), and from then on, new comments are accepted normally, but they are only visible to the person who made them, and the owner/creator/editors. You then need to listen to each new comment and decide to make the comment visible to all. So I have some voicethreads, like 'what's a voicethread anyway' where I can see as many as 20-30 comments on a page, but the rest of the world only sees two or three. Here's a quick tutorial, http://voicethread.com/view.php?b=718


Thanks, let me know if there's anything else you need

Cheers
John
