Voki is a nice tool that can be used with students, in an informal presentation or just for fun (I usually make Vokis for people’s birthdays and send them by email). All you have to do is access the site http://www.voki.com and create! I have registered so as to keep track of all my vokis.
1st step is to choose a character – they have several although some are destined for voki classroom which means they’re not free.
2nd step – choose a voice – you can record your own or simply write the text and choose a voice from their selection (they actually have different accents of English and different languages too!). You can listen to it and edit, if it’s not right.
3rd step- get a background scenario
4th step – you can opt to include props, bling etc.
5th step – save it, email it or publish it in your website
