Here is my first Voki character, GingerMan. It is an avatar that can speak using text to speech or you can record a message for your avatar to say. In this case, GingerMan welcomes teachers to the online web 2.0 course Classroom Learning 2.0. There are all sorts of options for representations of yourself, from holiday characters, historical figures, cartoons, cats, dogs, and more. there are a number of voice options, including male or female. Also different languages. Lots of background options. Check it out. Make different avatars for different occasions. this is designed for young people, but on the Internet who knows if you are a dog?
