Let your students create their own Avatars with Doppelme

Students will love creating their own Avatars to stick on their own blogs or digital work.  Avatars are a great and safe way for students to have an online identity without using a real photograph of them self that may cause security and privacy issues.  Doppelme is a great little tool for students to do this.

What is an avatar?
The term "avatar" is used to describe an icon or virtual representation of a person within cyberspace. Avatars crop up in blogs, forums and other shared communities (e.g. MySpace) on the internet.


What can I use a DoppelMe for?
Your DoppelMe is a great way to express your personality and communicate with others on the internet. This visual online identity puts a friendly face on your internet presence and best of all, you can quickly update it depending on your mood. You are not limited to the internet either and can download your avatar to use in documents, greetings cards, letters...the list is endless.


How much does DoppelMe cost?
Anyone can create a DoppelMe and it is completely free to do so.


Can I have more than one DoppelMe?
