Voki is a free multidisciplinary tool to create your own persona by designing a talking avatar to suit your needs. Voki offers customization options for selecting your image, background, and voice. Messages can be delivered in any of 30 languages. At Bergen, Voki has been used in online courses and embedded on numerous web pages.
