Introducing Voki Classroom – Part 3

Introducing Voki Classroom – Part 3


We hope that you’re having a great summer, and you’re probably starting to think about the start of the upcoming school year ? Below is the final, and most informative post of our 3-part announcement about Voki Classroom.

In Part 1 of the Voki Classroom announcement, we introduced you to Voki’s new classroom management system. In Part 2, we told you more about some of the features you’ll have access to with Voki Classroom. In this final post, Part 3, we’re going to discuss some additional features included in Voki Classroom, as well as the pricing and schedule.

Last time, we discussed:

This time, we’ll talk about:
  • Student View
  • Assignment Showcase
  • Voki Classroom Support
  • Voki Classroom Pricing
Student view. After logging in to Voki Classroom, students can easily view all of their Vokis by Assignments, and by complete or incomplete Assignments. Under each Assignments, they will see the instructions that the teacher has provided. Clicking the Edit button will open the Voki editor (the same editor you’ve always used in Voki.com/Create) and let them create (or edit) their Vokis. With Voki Classroom, students will create their Vokis in a secure and ad-free environment.

Bonus: As an added feature, when students create their Vokis in Voki Classroom, they will be able to create audio messages that are 50% longer than the current limit! The longer 90-second audio limit will enable students to prepare more detailed Voki messages.

Assignment Showcase. Each of your Assignment automatically generates its own Web page (an Assignment Page), where you can showcase your students’ work. You can easily configure each Assignment Page – select a layout and font. You can also set the Assignment to Private and add password protection to the Assignment Page. TIP: you can also set the Assignment Page as “hidden” so it not viewable while students are working on their Vokis.

Unlimited Support. Voki Classroom also includes unlimited email support from our dedicated support team. While logged in, simply click on Contact Support, choose your topic, and send us a note! Our support team is here to help you with any questions you might have.

Voki Classroom Pricing. We know all too well that teachers don’t usually have much of a budget to work with for technology. With that in mind, we’ve made every effort to reduce the price of Voki Classroom down to a very manageable amount. Below is the pricing of Voki Classroom. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Currently, the pricing is based on an annual or bi-annual plan. The 1-year and 2-year plans help reduce the monthly cost.
  • We’re very confident that educators who use Voki will Love Voki Classroom, and we’re backing it up with a full 30-day money-back guarantee. Here’s what that means: If you’re not satisfied for any reason within, 30 days of purchasing Voki Classroom, simply contact support and ask for a refund. You’ll receive a Full (100%) refund of your purchase price.

Without further ado, here is the pricing for Voki Classroom:

  • 1 Year Subscription: $29.95/year ($2.50/month)
  • 2 Year Subscription: $44.95/2 years ($22.48/year, or $1.87/month) – a 25% discount
Additional Discounts. In addition to the 2-Year discount of 25%, schools can get an further discounts when they purchase multiple accounts (Multiple-Account Discounts):
  • 10% Discount when purchasing 5 to 9 accounts
  • 15% Discount when purchasing 10 or more accounts
Note: The 2-Year account discount and multiple-account discounts are separate from each other. You don’t need one to get the other, but you can get both!
.
So, when is this happening?
All this talk about Voki Classroom – but we haven’t told you when Voki Classroom will be Live! Well, we can now tell you that Voki Classroom will be ready and live around Mid August, just in time for the upcoming school year.
.
That’s it, you’re officially schooled on Voki Classroom. Don’t worry, since school is out, there won’t be a quiz.

Let us know what you think in the comments area below. We’d love to hear your thoughts/ questions/ concerns about Voki Classroom.

Until next time,
The Voki Team

  1. Hi Jan,

    Yes, one account is needed per teacher, unless teachers choose to share a login. There is a limit of 100 students per account, and 5 classes. If teachers have more than 100 students or 5 classes, they can contact support and their limits may be increased.

  2. Hi,
    My name is Miroslava Silva. I work as ICT Primary Teacher at the International School of the Hague in the Netherlands. I can’t wait to start using Voki with our students this school year. I think we would need 2 accounts for Voki in the classroom. Could you please send me an official quote? We start the 15th of August and I would like to have the accounts ready for our students by then.

    Kind regards,
    Miros

    1. Hi Miros,

      That’s great! Voki Classroom is actually a do-it-yourself subscription. As soon as it is live, you’ll be able to easily upgrade your account right on Voki.com. The site will have all the info you need, including a nice overview movie.

      You should see Voki Classroom on voki.com any day now – definitely before the 15th!

      Not to worry – as soon as the site launches, there will be a new Learn section that will include some Voki Classroom resources, like a step-by-step guide, as well as an FAQ section!
