I just made a new Voki. See it here: VOKI for the Classroom!


What is Voki?

Voki is an educational tool that allows users to create their very own talking character. Voki is created by Oddcast and is located in New York City.

Voki characters can be customized to look like historical figures, cartoons, animals, and even yourself! Give your Voki a voice by recording with a microphone, using our dial-in number, or uploading an audio file. Voki characters can be emailed, shared on social media, and embedded on websites!

What’s with the name?

Voki is a combination of the words “vox” and “Loki”. “Vox” is the Latin term for voice. Loki is a Norse god from Norse mythology. Loki is a trickster who has the ability to change his shape. Fitting name since Voki gives students and teachers the ability to change the character’s appearance and add a voice!

What is Voki Classroom?

Voki Classroom is a student, class, and lesson management system for Voki. With Voki Classroom, teachers are able to control their students’ privacy settings. Visit our Products page to see the benefits of upgrading to Voki Classroom.

Now, I’m not suggesting that you use VOKI to teach every lesson while you take a vacation in the Bahamas.  But hey, what a great tool to have in your teacher tool box to use whenever you want to switch things up a bit! 🙂
