Copy a VoiceThread

Making a copy of a VoiceThread allows you to make changes to a copy without affecting the original. Additionally, during the copy process, the copy can be renamed and comments can be stripped from the new copy, making it easy to reuse VoiceThread content without having to re-create it or manually manipulate comments. A copy of a VoiceThread can be made from the UArizona VT Home Page (opens in a new tab) or from inside the VoiceThread you wish to copy. To copy a VoiceThread using one of these two methods, follow the subsequent steps.
