Panopto is a presentation capture tool built into the Blackboard Course Space. Essentially, you can use it within any active course space to record and post presentations, including screen capture. Students can also use Panopto to record presentations.

"VoiceThread is a tool for having dynamic conversations around media. Upload a collection of media, comment on it, and share
it with others so they can participate in the conversation at anytime, anywhere."
We think of VoiceThread as a way to increase interactivity within the online course space by providing a specific place to upload
and discuss a variety of media types (such as videos, slides, images, audio files, etc). Both instructor and student can then
post audio or written comments, notations, and graphics at certain points within the media, for example on slide two and slide
four, or at minute 2.05 in a video. The following tutorials from VoiceThread can get you started.
If you have questions or would like to inquire as to how to integrate VoiceThread into your own course, please don't hesitate to
