Voice-Enabled Activities Reinforce Language Skills Outside of Class

“iLrn fosters independence. It has enabled me to meet the demand for additional online sections, without getting bogged down in email.”

“I don’t think I would teach this class without iLrn.”

“iLrn compels students to engage with the work, which is what I want to see with online student so they aren’t just staring at the screen. iLrn made me realize how important a good online language learning system is to teaching effectively online.”

“An important benefit is my students can get instant feedback [from iLrn assignments]. They know right away if they got something wrong instead of waiting for a lag time.”

“My favorite thing is all of the activities. I love the gap activities, the students LOVE the charades, and there is a huge variety of activities from which to choose. The students love it too. They can get deeper into concepts because they have a lot of different ways to learn them.”

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Nexos, 3rd: PowerLecture Instructor Resource CD-ROM

ISBN: 9781111833299
The NEXOS 3e PowerLecture has been completely revamped from the second edition. Three new testing strands have been added to the existing two strands, and new audio has been recorded. The new testing strands are diverse in nature to match the various styles and needs of today's instructors: one strand is highly discrete, another is a blend of discrete and open-ended, and the last is more progressive and integrated in nature. Along with the enhanced testing program, additional, completely new resources have been created to aid professors in supplementing class time and homework. These include robust and highly visual Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations replete with instructional suggestions to assist novice and seasoned professors alike in leading class. Moreover, original info-gap activities have been added to supplement each chapter. Along with this, comprehensive, discrete grammar and vocabulary worksheets have been written to elaborate on concepts learned from each chapter.
