Ok folks – the audio trouble I was having was a technical one I’ve had before on my computer. I spent probably an hour fiddling with the settings and trying to get audio back up and running. The problem started after simply putting my headphones into the jack – I was left suddenly with no audio on anything – no YouTube, no Audacity, no Voki. So in the end, the app works pretty seamlessly, but sometimes the trouble lies in the machine. After remembering my troubles getting audio online with my classmates a few weeks ago (Big Blue Button audio troubles) I shut everything down and restarted the computer to attempt to fix the problem. Simple solution because it worked. It just took me an hour or so of exploration to figure it out. Damn machine. I will attempt to link my Ratty intro to my LMS another day. I think the students will enjoy playing with this one though. Enjoy!
OK – now I think I’m getting the hang of this! YAHOO! I made Ratty go viral! I wasn’t sure I could make the avatar image show on my page but I did it! (I’m high fiving myself right now because whenever I figure something like this out – though it may seem small to you, it’s HUGE learning for me). I’m so excited! Baby steps forward for me!
