This is just a poll to see if anyone is interested in having Vita-Learn pursue adding this feature to our current consortium purchase of VoiceThread.
Vita-learn is currently renewing its VoiceThread contract which allows us to obtain consortium pricing of VoiceThread for Vermont Schools at a huge savings.
For those of you who are didn't know.. Vita-Learn has been able to help Vermont Schools get school wide Voicethread licenses for up to 70% off the price published on the Voicethread K12 site. http://www.connectedvoices.org/voicethread
Some schools have asked about VoiceThread Google Integration
This is just a poll to see whether we should pursue this. Please reply to this email or to me off line if you would like to see us pursue consortium pricing of Google Apps Integration
We have the option to purchase Google Integration for VoiceThread accounts at consortium pricing. We're not sure if there is interest in our pursuing this.
It means that your whole Google domain would have access to VoiceThread through their Google Accounts.
Pro - automatic setup of new users. Less work for IT. Less username passwords for students to remember.
Con - you can't have some users use the Google Apps and others NOT using Google Apps (including your young learners). Would required a district / domain wide Google Account.
Yes there is a cost above and beyond your heavily discounted VoiceThread account. But depending on the number of schools interested we could be eligible for discounted pricing for this too. The more schools the bigger discount we can get.
