How do I authenticate my VoiceThread account with a Sakai site?

When the VoiceThread tool is added to a Sakai site, a folder for that site is created in VoiceThread. If the site is a course site, students enrolled in the site are able to view sessions in the course folder by default. If the site is a project site, users with the access role are able to view sessions in the site folder by default. 

If these sessions are added to the Lessons tool or the Resources tool, students and users with the access role will not be able to access these sessions within these tools until they authenticate their account. 

If a user attempts to access a session before authenticating, they will receive a message like the examples below. The user should not select Sign In. The user should follow the directions below to authenticate their account. 

Examples:

Do not select Sign In. Follow the instructions listed below.
