yup another cool little tool - all playing to our love of little gadgets !!! I look forward to how the Nodehill Bloggers will incorporate this into their blogs : ) Paul

Morning Joe, yes it seems to be the week of the avatar. Rockyou, gizmoz and voki. I must admit I like the flixn professional look but the student have enjoyed being updated by the likes of Ronaldinho and David Beckham from gizmoz.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your comments. I thought it was about time I put a little character into my blog.

I see Mr Chambers, geography teacher at St Ivo School in Cambridgeshire has picked up on the idea of using Voki in class by reading this blog. Thanks for passing by Mr Chambers!

Have a look at his posts here:

I have found your blog and TES reports really useful Joe, and enjoy trying out these new techniques. I'm still not doing very well in whole class use though. I've just got my Year 10 class to create their own Voki avatar, but now I want them to share them. I really want to enable them to share their efforts and enjoy them. I created a Blog (on blogger.com) but am stuck now on how to upload the avatars+sound files to this programme. Any ideas? Thanks Barbara

Hi Barbara,

You need to copy the HTML code from your Voki characters. I find the MySpace code seems to do the trick for Typepad. Then go to your Blogger post and click on edit HTML and then paste it in.

Try that.

As I listen to the avatar I'm reminded of Creature Comforts: where a voice is in sync with the clay animation. LOL :D

Hi there,

This is Vanessa from SitePal (Oddcast). Thanks for your post about Voki! You might be interested in SitePal's new Virtual Translator demo for your students. Type anything you want, and an animated character will translate it for you and speak it in another language of your choice!

Thanks and have fun with the demos!
