INTERACTIVE TEACHING :

The most exclusive feature of LearnSOFT Language Lab Software is that it works like a teacher teaching individual students. When the teacher opens the Interactive Control, the student’s module automatically opens its interactive teaching console and all other open windows are disabled.

When the Interactive Control is open the students have no control over their window. When teacher adds a multimedia lesson and starts playing, automatically the entire student consoles will start playing the same lesson. They are not allowed to move the lesson forward or backward unless the teacher moves the lesson forward or backward. Students cannot close the window unless the teacher closes the window from Teacher Console, when this happens all the students interactive windows will be closed at the same moment.

Advantages

Privacy & Effective Learning :

Individual headsets with microphones not only guarantee absolute privacy for student - teacher communications in the multimedia language lab but also ensure effective learning as it encourages even the self - consciously inhibited student to speak with confidence - without being worried about peer - ridicule common in a normal classroom setting. Moreover it reduces the classroom distraction as communication between a particular student and his/her teacher is completely independent of the rest of the group. It benefits to practice and assess any language and develop confidence among the learners.

Better Attention & Quicker Comprehension :

The LearnSOFT English Language Lab software is more attention-riveting for the student and increases the pace of comprehension as student coaching is purely based on level of study, grasping power as well as language aptitude among others.

Enhances listening skills & Encourages Self-Pacing :

Listening skills are automatically honed and with the added advantage of being able to pace oneself based on comprehension of recordings, the language is imbibed more naturally aiding confident delivery with an immaculate accent. It helps to practice and assess any language and develop confidence among the learners.

LearnSOFT English Language Lab can be broadly categorizes and abbreviated as VITI :
 
Versatility- Text, Images, Audio, and Video can easily be integrated and the teacher can remodel and alter materials to fit the needs of a multitude of language teaching programs.
Interactivity- Students can record their own voice and play back the recordings, interact with each other and the Teacher, and store results.
Teacher Intervention- The teacher can make student-specific oral comments as well as have real-time control of students’ computers via Teacher’s Console, track student work, and much more...
Independent Learning - Access to recourses beyond the timetable encourages independent learning.

Acoustics :

Irrespective of the seating arrangement in a language laboratory classroom setting, each student- by virtue of being privy to direct sound transmission- receives step- by- step guidance from the teacher to their headsets with crystal clear clarity.

REMOTE DESKTOP ACCESS :

LearnSOFT Language lab being a networked application, the Teacher acts as the server and necessarily needs to monitor all students. To achieve this, we have introduced an advanced technology - Remote Desktop Viewer. By using this, the teacher is able to capture any student's screen and view the same on his/her console. For future reference teacher can save the file as bit map image. The same can be later viewed on any photo editor or even from Language Lab Remote Desktop Control. This is one of the outstanding features of LearnSOFT Language Lab, and it acts like Remote Surveillance Camera.

AUDIO & VIDEO BROADCASTING

File transfer system helps the teacher to send lessons to the students system based on the progress of each student and the student can send back the completed exercise to the teacher for evaluation. The System supports broadcasting of files up to a file size of 2GB and the speed depends upon the network. All types of lesson files [MP3, DAT, MPG, AVI, txt etc] can be sent over the network. The students are able to watch the preview of lessons either directly from the teacher console or by downloading to their local folder. To improve the loading speed and overall efficiency of the program, it is highly recommended to delete all the lessons while quitting the program.

LESSON COMPARING:

Lesson comparing means to hear one’s own voice with the experts voice. To compare a lesson, the student must open an audio file to start. This audio file will be used as reference file. When user clicks on record button, the audio will start playing the reference track as well as records the new voice from the student. Simultaneous process will take place. After stopping the comparison, the audio file saves automatically . Compare button will be active if a successful recording is done. To play the recorded lesson just click on the compare button. The system plays both sounds automatically. Thus students/ teacher is able to compare their pronunciation skills. This is another powerful extension to the LearnSOFT Language Lab System

MULTIMEDIA SUPPORT :

Multimedia files are most useful for teaching any languages. Audio files help the students to study the pronunciation styles, accent etc. Video files can be shown to teach the lip moments. For situational English the teacher can show some flash files. LearnSOFT Language Lab software supports wide variety of multimedia formats available today. Supported File Types: AVI, MPG, DAT ,MP3, Wave, PDF, Doc, PPT ,Txt, swf and Flash Files etc.
