  • Are you a networked teacher???
  • Organize your digital life! Save time! Too many bookmarks and email addresses? Personalized Access anytime from any computer
  • Add content – widgets, feeds (webnote, to do list)
  • They select the background, the clothing, eye color, hair color and shape, and accessories. They record their voices either directly on the website or with the voice recorder on the computer. They may also call Voki and record from their phone. Students send their Vokis to the teacher who may post them on a blog, wiki, or website. What is Voki? Voki enables users to express themselves on the web in their own voice using a talking character. You can customize your Voki to look like you or take on the identity of lots of other types of characters… animals, monsters, anime etc. Your Voki can speak with your own voice which is added via microphone, upload, or phone. Voki lives on your blog, social network profile and will soon be integrated in various instant messaging platforms. You will also be able to download it to most video supported phones. What&apos;s with the name? Voki is a combination of &amp;quot;vox&amp;quot;, which is Latin for voice, and &amp;quot; Loki &amp;quot;, which, is a prankster character in Norse Mythology. Who made Voki? Voki is brought to you by the folks at Oddcast , a New York based company that has been creating speaking characters on the web for years. These are the same people behind the popular Careerbuilder Monk-e-mail . Will Voki always be free? Yes, you will always be able to come and create a character for free at Voki. However, we may offer special items or characters for sale at some point. Also some of the things you can do with your Voki, like downloading it to your phone, may cost money. It is also likely that you will see different kinds of sponsorship on the site. No matter what we do to make money through Voki, we&apos;ll make sure we keep you in the loop, get your feedback, and try not to do anything that makes Voki less entertaining to have.
