VoiceThread, a cloud-based social media tool, was used to create a sense of community in an undergraduate blended nursing leadership course. The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to explore the use of VoiceThread to build a community of inquiry. The Community of Inquiry and IDEA surveys were completed by 163 students enrolled in an undergraduate nursing leadership course within an RN-BS curriculum. Results indicated using VoiceThread increased student-perceived teacher excellence, supported social presence and teacher presence, and promoted a community of inquiry.
