Are you looking for a way to add some interest to your web site? Check out Voki, a free tool for creating speaking avatars. I can think of a few ways to utilize Voki:
- Create avatars for library staff to introduce themselves on your web site.
- Use Voki avatars for navigational guidance on specific web pages.
- Let your Voki avatars provide library instruction bits in a tutorial.
Really, the use of Voki is only limited to your imagination. And if you really like it, you can purchase Voki classroom for $24.95 (1 year). Voki classroom offers you more options for avatars, plus access to a classroom management system. Very cool product! See my sample below:
