Voki Talking Avatar
What is Voki?
Voki provides a unique way to get your students to hear your message. Use Voki to motivate, instruct, or animate your class. It provides a creative means of giving your students a voice in class assignments.
How do I get started with Voki?
To get started using Voki, create a free account at voki.com . Create a unique presence by choosing your character, hair, clothing and background setting. Add your own voice or type your text and have a computer voice speak for you. Choose from 30 languages since Voki is multi-lingual. Voki can be embedded in your Moodle course or faculty webpage.
Where can I find examples of VOKI?
- Voki is used on the Student Affairs online orientation website. Our Health & Wellness online orientation is an example. Each counselor’s Avatar provides an introduction to services provided. Instead of just reading text the student can listen to the avatar’s verbal description.
- Math Playground is an external site that uses Voki to help solve word problems. The student listens to 2 avatars explain how to solve the problem and must decide which avatar is correct.
- VOKI can be used for language learning. See the example of a French speaking avatar above. French text is entered and a French voice is selected for the proper pronunciation.
- View a short compilation of examples on our YouTube site.
