I am a teacher at a German school and I love your vokis. They are nothing short of fantastic :)
I have got a questions about the conditions under which I can use them for educational, non-commercial purposes.
I am creating an interactive scorm-packet with Adobe Captivate.
The topic is American and British English.
I would love to include one American and one British Voki - talking to each other about the pictures in the middle (pavement <> sidewalk...).
I cannot use Voki Presenter to do that - I have to use Captivate.
Thanks to your blog I know how to do a screen capture. But am I really allowed to use these videos that way I want to use them? Of course I would give notice of your website and link back to you, but is that enough? I would use them only for non-commercial purposes (I would put the "presentation" under CC-BY-NC-SA).
It would be great if you could clear that up for me.
I want to reuse my avatar when sending individual messages to my students.
An article from 2011 http://blog.voki.com/2011/05/12/how-to-copy-a-voki/ shows a method of emailing a copy to myself and saving it. Is this still the best way to reuse the avatar I created when I want to just change the audio and send a new message to another student?
Related question one: If I send a message via email and then edit my Voki to add a recorded message for a second student and publish (save) and send it to my second student, will my first student still be able to hear her message or will she now hear student two's message?
Related question two: Do the presenter or classroom versions allow you to copy/reuse your avatar in an easier fashion than emailing a copy to yourself?
Thanks. This is a great product. I'm teaching part time and if I get more students, I might want to upgrade.
Whenever I try to upload an audio file to my voki avatar it turns back with the following error message:
"Please check that the file you are uploading is not being used exclusively by another application, and try again. (IO error)"
I've tried the following solutions but to no avail.
- Making sure that the uploaded file isn't used with another application.
- Restarting the computer sever times before visiting the voki.com again.
- Freeing the computer/browser memory.
- Freeing my voki memory (if any), I've deleted a couple of the stored audio files.
- Trying to uploading files while logging to voki.com from a different browser.
- I even have created an new account but the problem is still there.
I appreciate your swift response as our students are awaiting for the new lesson to be published today.
This should be the easy part, but I just can't figure it out. When I try to create a new Voki, there is a box over the part of the screen to select a new character. If I use the defautl one, it is covered by the box. Anysuggestions??
