What is Voki?
Voki is an educational tool for teachers and students, that can be used to enhance instruction, engagement, and lesson comprehension. Voki can be used in class (for student work), as an animated presentation tool, for student assignments, and as a virtual supervised discussion forum (Voki Hangouts).
Voki characters can look like historical figures, cartoons, animals, and more. Give your Voki a voice by recording your voice, or using text-to-speech (over 30 languages supported, hundreds of voices to choose from). Students have fun creating their speaking characters & making them talk. Teachers can direct this activity through assignments, presentations, and dialog groups (once again – Voki Hangouts).
Voki is created by Oddcast Inc., located in New York City.
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!
Will there always be a free version of Voki?
Yes, Basic Voki will always be free for both educators and students. The Basic account is not time-limited - you may use it for as long as you like. Basic Voki users have access to most Voki characters, and are limited to 5 student accounts.
What does the paid version of Voki offer?
With the paid version we try to provide enhanced functionality that allows teachers to get the most from the Voki platform. Features that enable management of more students, as well as other benefits. To see the complete list please review - https://www.voki.com/site/pricing
