"This silly voki earned rave reviews from the moment my students saw the wiki. Immediately, students wanted to make their own pages and vokis! Sometimes even something silly increases engagement in the skills we want to teach them." - Bree M., Certified Educator

"At the end of this school year, I just had students visit my wiki to listen to the messages (in Spanish) that I programmed into my Voki avatar. They would come to class the next day with the message written on a piece of paper (for extra credit)." - Anne G.
