I was inspired by the Edublogger post about “Adding A Voki Speaking Avatar To A Post or Page of Your Blog” and thought it would be something interesting to add to the site. I am do not particularly like being video taped, but don’t mind recording messages.
I am pleased to introduce My Voki,* or a talking voice character, a computer-generated version of myself, Dr. Kirsti A. Dyer a.k.a ProfessorDoc. She will give you a brief introduction to the Ruminations of an Online Instructor – MD Blog. To hear the message, simply click on the arrow in the frame below.
What is a Voki?
* Voki comes from Vox + Loki = Voki. “Vox” is Latin for voice and “Loki” is a prankster character in Norse Mythology.
Where can I get my own Voki?
Are you inspired also? You can get your own Voki at the Voki Website. Please note that Vokis are only for personal, non-commercial use only.
For more information on creating Voki’s see Sue Walter’s helpful posts on the topic in the Edublogger.
