Add a Voki Avatar to your lesson!


Grab your students' attention and watch them participate in class by embedding a speaking avatar right onto your SMART Notebook software page. Create an avatar yourself, or better yet, have your students create their own by visiting voki.com. You can customize your avatar’s voice, background, theme, and character. When your avatar is complete, all you have to do is publish and copy and paste to the Voki widget in SMART Notebook. IMPORTANT NOTE: Notebook 11 and Internet access is required to use this widget.
Move your mouse around and watch the avatar's eyes follow. Press play on the voki to the left to see what it has to say!
