Voki

Principal function(s): Game apps

Voki is an online tool that allows creating and customising characters (avatars), adding voice to these avatars, posting a voki to a blog, website, or an online profile, and using it to communicate and interact with other people online. Registration is required. Evaluation: A fun and easy-to-use tool aimed at primary and secondary school students. A wide variety of avatars and other fun features make Voki a perfect tool to relieve students from anxiety they may have when faced with an oral task. Vokis can be saved and a free account offers a variety of options. Vokis are shared via a link.
If you want to learn more about Voki and its options, you can check it out on the Moodle workspace (registration required).

Cost: Free with registration + Paid premium plans
