Thanks to @joedale, I picked up the news yesterday that Voki has a new service. I’ve never made any secret of my passion for these talking avatars and their uses for a variety of purposes, especially in the classroom.
The good news – classroom friendly, ad-free Voki
The bad news – you have to pay ‘ a small license fee’ per year
On balance, I’m not convinced of the benefits of paying $199 (which seems rather a lot to me) when I can use it perfectly adequately now for free.
However, I will await further details!
However, this news was accompanied by the realisation that there is a ‘featured Voki educator’ section on the Voki home page. And guess who features a the moment?
Oh yes – it’s me! If you want to see me in action, click here!
Very flattered! And wandering if they need a Voki poster girl…..? ;o)
