VoiceThread is a great asynchronous way to conduct chats. Post a discussion prompt and let the class take over by posting their own audio comments or text comments to build on the conversation. Use the space in the middle area to post PowerPoints, pictures, or other relevant information!

Jing is a great tool to use to create a video and voice recording right from your computer screen. Use it to explain a PowerPoint, demonstrate how to do something, or make your own unique movie.

Use your avatar as a motivation piece, or to keep up momentum during your course.

Skype is a great synchronous chat tool-- you can make skype to skype phone calls for free anywhere in the world.
