New synchronous audio and video recording tools

Most language instructors want to increase oral practice outside the classroom, but have difficulty motivating learners to practice on their own time or holding learners accountable.

Based on requests from instructors and students, MyLab Languages now offers synchronous audio and video recording capability, so instructors can easily facilitate oral practice outside the classroom. Instructors can assign speaking activities that motivate learners to demonstrate their ability to engage in conversation with other students in the class. Learners “see” who in their class is available to speak, engage in an online video and audio chat, and record their conversation. The tool transmits the video and audio recording to the grade book where instructors can then review, comment or leave feedback, and assign a grade.

Communicate “live” with native speakers from around the world

In collaboration with WeSpeke, chapter-specific activities enable students to practice new language “live” with native speakers of their choosing from around the world. Learners select native speaking partners from any country they choose and complete activities that put newly acquired language to use in the “real” world, which increases curiosity, cross- cultural communication, engagement, and motivation.

Learning Catalytics™

Many language instructors have been successfully implementing pair and group work for years, but they've had difficulties maintaining a focus on the task, monitoring progress, and measuring outcomes of such work.

Learning Catalytics is an interactive classroom tool that allows every student to participate. Instructors ask ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ questions and students​ answer ​using​ ​their​ ​smartphones,​ ​tablets,​ ​or​ ​laptops to show that ​they​ ​do—or ​don’t—understand. Instructors monitor​ ​responses​ to adjust their ​teaching​ approach, and even set up ​peer-to-peer​ ​learning. More importantly, they use ​real-time​ ​analytics​ to ​address​ ​student misconceptions​ ​the​ ​moment​ ​they​ ​occur and ensure they hear​ ​from​ ​EVERY​ ​student​ ​when​ ​it​ ​matters most.

Extensive online resources facilitate personalized learning for every student

MyLab Languages is the only online learning and assessment system that offers optional English Grammar Readiness Checks, which test students' understanding of grammar topics in English and provide personalized remediation via animated tutorials.

Throughout every MyLab Languages course, feedback bubbles in machine-graded activities give students instant hints on how to approach an activity and/or why a given answer is incorrect. When students try the activity a second time, the "Need help?" feature links to specific sections in the eText and additional resources directly related to the activity's concept. The result is improved student performance.
