Voki can be used to create talking avatars that can be embedded into your Blackboard course for an audio announcement (or sent in an email). There are lots of characters to choose from including animals and politicians. Voki also has a special section for Education and a Teacher’s Corner to share how you can use Voki in the classroom: http://www.voki.com/Voki_for_education.php. Have fun with this!
