On Saturday November 18, Julie Lindsay, an educational technology specialist at International School in Dhaka, Bangladesh posted a great video on how to sign up for Evoca. I want to share the link with you all so you can check it out for yourself and hear more about her eLearning and ICT integration and digital literacy in education. You can find her video at http://123elearning.blogspot.com/. I encourage to visit her page and watch the video. It is very cool, indeed! If we can get a copy of the video, we will be sure to post it. Let us know if the video helps. In the meantime, keep speaking up and speaking out!

We’re just getting crazy now. In the last week we have more than doubled the number of phone numbers available to Evoca users. You can now call in from places like Brazil, Spain, Germany, and the UK. To find all these number just click the flag icons at the top right of each Evoca page. Then? Pick up your phone and dial away! In the meantime, keep speaking up and speaking out!
This past week Evoca added two more countries to our International Faire. We now offer numbers in Australia and the United Kingdom. To locate these number you only need to click on the flags in the upper right corner of any Evoca page. It is quite easy and is sure to make it easier for our friends across the pond and down under a lot more talkative. So, what are you waiting for? Ring us! Speak up and speak out….

All of here at Evoca have put in help tickets to other companies only to find ourselves still frustrated, anxiously awaiting a response days later. That is why we take special pride in our customer service. In fact, when you submit a ticket or suggestion, one of our team answers it personally. Many times you will find my name attached to the ticket. We not only want to hear your voice, but we also want to respond. We love that Evoca has become synonymous with being heard! After all, that is what we “sell”.
We have found that we aren’t the only ones that believe in this system of governance. In a recent post by Union Square Ventures, “customer service is the new marketing because you can realize the radical efficiencies of the web only by enlisting the users of the service as co-contributors. The best web services provide bandwidth, cpu, storage and a governance system and then their users create the service.”
So please feel free to hit us up with any questions or issues. We are always here to hear…and respond!
Faithful Americans include Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Baha’is, to name a few. Many express their faiths in individual ways. Yet all of us share a common bond – when it comes to government and speaking out about what we believe. A program of the National Council of Churches, USA, FaithfulAmerica.org is made up of persons who believe that one’s faith – however broadly or uniquely expressed – has a word to say about our nation’s government and its priorities.
During this time before the mid-term elections (with two years left in his presidency), FaithfulAmerica is asking people to use Evoca to talk to President Bush. On their website they have provided an Evoca Browser Mic in which people can leave thoughts, remarks, critiques, and requests for our president. It is a huge step for the political process – to give people back their voice!
We all know that Web 2.0 is about user-driven content. What you put in is what you get out. Well, at Evoca we have tried to provide something unique that would allow a nice clean look with quality audio tools. But who can resist having a customized page? Certainly not some of us. So, yesterday we did a little experimenting with tags and background images and such and came up with some fun Evoca profiles. You can see one here. There are so many free customization tools out there that were originally designed for pages like MySpace or Xanga or LiveJournal or even personal websites. Start out easy and just use those. Add the tags into your profile boxes found under My account > Profile. It is that easy. And if you do decide to pimp out your Evoca….let us know. Drop us your URL or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see how creative you can be with images, games, backgrounds, and audio! Keep speaking up and speaking out………….
