New in Voki Classroom: 2 New Tabs!

New in Voki Classroom: 2 New Tabs!

If you use Voki Classroom, you are probably accustomed to the three main sections:

  1. Students: Add and manage up to 100 students.
  2. Classes: Add and manage up to 5 classes and multiple Assignments per Class.
  3. Review: View, Approve, and Share your students’ Voki assignments.
Based on feedback from users, we have just introduced two new tabs, and a side tab!
  • Support: The Contact Support link located in the top right of the page has been replaced by a complete Support tab, making it more visible for Voki Classroom users. Really – you can’t miss it!

  • My Account: To make the Voki Classroom pages even cleaner looking, and to give you more control over your account, we have added a My Account tab on the far right. Here, you can view (and edit) your account settings most conveniently (see it below). Here’s what you can do in My Account:
    • Personal Information: Here, you can add a salutation, edit your name, and add a picture. This is the information your students see when logging in, and what shows up on each Assignment Page, unless you marked it as Private.
    • Personal Settings: Here, you can edit your Teacher ID, your account email address, and your account password.
    • Account Settings: Here, you can view your account expiration date (and renew), your account ID, and how long you’ve been a (valued) Voki Classroom user.

  • Feedback: Since we value your opinion so greatly (!), we’ve also introduced a Feedback tab to the far right of the page. Here, you can provide more general feedback (ideas, issues, praise, questions), which we will use to improve Voki Classroom. Clicking the “Feedback” side tab (on the right side of the page) will launch the feedback widget:

That’s all for now. More enhancements will follow, as we get more of your feedback. So go ahead, tell us what you would love to see in Voki Classroom!
Until next time,

New in Voki Classroom: Teacher IDs

New in Voki Classroom: Teacher IDs

We recently introduced a small-but-nifty new feature, based on feedback from Voki Classroom users.

Each student login that is created by Voki Classroom is based on a student’s name and the teacher’s email address. So, a student login might look like this:

The issue(s): Many teachers use their personal email address for their Voki account, and they are not eager for this to appear in the student login. Also, using the full teacher email means that student logins could get quite loooooong.

The solution – Teacher IDs: To overcome these issues, we implemented the Teacher ID feature. If defined by you (the teacher), the Teacher ID will replace your email address in student logins. Clearly, a Teacher ID can shorten and simplify student logins, while also removing your email address from their logins.

The Teacher ID can include any combination of letters, numbers, and the underscore character, but it must be unique (like you!). Since Voki Classroom is only about 1 month old, most of the cool Teacher ID’s are still available. So, if you set your Teacher ID to, say, “Mrs.Farmer”, your student logins will look like this: First.Last:Mrs.Farmer. Much shorter and easier to remember!

UPDATE: Here’s how to set up your Teacher ID:

  1. Log in to Voki Classroom and click on the My Account tab.
  2. Under Personal Settings, next to Teacher ID, click Edit.
  3. Enter a unique Teacher ID and click Save. That’s it!
  • To learn more about the Teacher ID, click the (?) symbol next to “Teacher ID”
  • Remember: Once you create/ edit a Teacher ID, your students’ logins will also be updated – make sure you provide them with the updated login info.

Let us know what you think about Teacher IDs!




Next time, we’ll introduce you to two (and a half) New sections in Voki Classroom.

Until then,

The Voki Team
