Voki for Collaborative Learning in Blackboard Vista

·

The advent of Web 2.0 brings in endless possibilities to enhance collaborative learning in the classroom. In this paper a website that holds much promise for classroom application, voki.com, was analyzed and is recommended for teachers to use in a Learning Management System (LMS). In our opinion, adopting Voki in an LMS will enhance students’ learning experiences, as the teacher becomes an enabler and learning facilitator, thus enriching the learning experience for the student. A few examples are presented to show how we used Voki in our LMS, Blackboard Vista, at Dubai Women’s College, to enhance student learning of targeted content vocabulary.
