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). When they sign into those accounts in the app, someone will need to change the domain in the app to be your custom domain so they can continue to use those usernames. Below are the steps they can follow.

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap “Settings”.
  3. Enter the first part of your custom domain. For example, if your domain is myschool.ed.voicethread.com, enter “myschool.ed” as the domain.
  4. Tap “Save”.
  5. Tap “Sign in”.
  6. Enter their username and password.
  7. Tap “Sign in”.

The app will remember your domain preference moving forward, so steps 2-4 only need to be done the first time the device is used.


External authentication

If your school or institution has integrated VoiceThread with your learning management system (Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, Sakai, etc.), with Google Apps, or with its own system, then you’ll need to access VoiceThread by following the steps below.

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap “Settings”.
  3. Enter the first part of your custom domain. For example, if your domain is institution.voicethread.com, enter “institution” as the domain. If you don’t know your institution’s domain, please contact us.
  4. Tap “Sign in”.  This will direct you to your custom sign-in page.  From here, follow the usual steps you would take to access VoiceThread in your web browser.  Some possibilities are:
    • Sign in to your Google account.
    • Sign in to your online course and tap on the VoiceThread link provided by your instructor.
    • Sign in to your school’s or university’s portal.

Sign-in assistance

If your institution uses external authentication and you have not yet set the institutional domain in the App, you may be redirected to the correct domain based on your email address. If your institution supports this, you will see a hint when you enter your email address and a button that takes you to the correct sign-in page.
