Le pendant de VoiceThread à l'écrit. NowComment permet de commenter / débattre par écrit sur des documents du web en mode privé ou public. Le mode public ne propose pas de filtre de langue, difficile donc pour le moment de proposer des activités FLE de contributions à des débtas ouverts essentiellement en anglais.
