In this short screencast, I’ll show you how to embed your memoir VoicesThread into a discussion post on Youth Voices to get more youth to see your work and to add comments.
Log in at VoiceThread and at Youth Voices.
Find and open your memoir VoiceThread.
Go to Share and click the tab: Who has access. Under Publishing options, choose Anyone can comment and click Publish on browse page.
Then go to the Basic tab and click the Embed button. Change the size to 640 pixels x 360 pixels, and make sure that View and Comment are clicked, to allow anyone to view and comment on your VoiceThread. Then click the button to Copy Embed Code.
Create a Youth Voices Discussion Post and stay in the Visual Mode. Paste (CTRL-v or Command-v) the code that you just copied from VoiceThread. It will look something like this:
Now you have to replace the angle brackets with square parentheses or brackets and get rid of the closing code: It should look like this: [iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://voicethread.com/app/player/?threadId=164905" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen]
You won't see the embed until you publish or update, then it will embed your VoiceThread for you.
Don’t forget to add a title and set a featured image before you hit the Publish button. Also click VoiceThread in the Categories, then hit Publish.
