In Part 1 of the Voki Classroom announcement, we introduced you to Voki’s classroom management system. We received some great feedback and we’d like to share more about Voki Classroom. In Part 2, we’re going to tell you more about some of the additional features you’ll have access to with Voki Classroom.
Last time, we discussed:
This time, we’ll discuss:
- Managing Classes and Lessons
- Reviewing Student Work
Just a quick note – we wanted to let you know that we’re very close to the launch of Voki Classroom – it’s only a matter of weeks now. We want to make sure that we polish every edge, and end up with a product that is completely intuitive, easy to use, and foolproof for even the least tech-savvy user! In short, using Voki Classroom will be even easier than using Voki itself. And now, more about Voki Classroom:
Manage Classes & Lessons. Voki Classroom lets you add and manage your classes, as well as lessons within each class. When you add a new class, a new row will appear (see below). You can then name your class – i.e. “Spanish (first period)” and add lessons to it.
To add a lesson, simply click on the Notepad+ icon next tot he class name. Then, give your lesson a name, and add a description. You can also customize the layout and coloring of each lesson by clicking on the Configure icon. Each lesson comes with a lesson page – a Web page where you can feature all of the approved Vokis created for that lesson. Or, if you prefer, you can set the lesson page to Private and require a password to view it. If you have your own class site, you can still easily embed each Voki using the embed code.
Review Student Work. Review and approve your students’ Vokis within your Voki Classroom account, all in one page. You can view all students Vokis for a given lesson (view “By Lesson”), or look up and review all Vokis created by an individual student (view “By Student”). You can also choose to view only incomplete, completed or un-reviewed Vokis.
Clicking the Preview icon (the little person button) will open a new window with the Voki scene. If approved, just click the Approve icon (green check mark), and the Voki will appear on the lesson page. To get the code, click on the Code icom (<>).
That’s all for Part 2 of our introduction to Voki Classroom.
