    Dear Joe,
    I have spotted this on the voki site. I was wondering if you or anyone else had views on how safe it would be to set one of these up. It seems a way of using the site without the children having to register on the site as a whole and useful for those of us who work in areas where VLEs don't exist. I was wondering if you could cast your IT/teacher eye over it. (Setting up and running a school blog does not fill me with enthusiasm). I am presuming that if I set up a voki classroom then no-one else can have access without my details?
    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Random175,
    The advantage of Voki Classroom is that login details are automatically generated for pupils so they don't need to register and you can set your page to private if you want to. I suggest you have a look at these three links which explain more.

    Another option is to use the free version of Voki where pupils create their own Voki and the URL needed to access it without registering. Alternatively, you can create one account, share the details with pupils and ask them to save their creations in the same place. I don't know if there is a limit on the number of Vokis you can create per account.
    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes
    Joe

    Thank you so much. I'm glad I can set the page to private. I will have a look at those links.
