A patented language lesson creation platform created for language instructors by language instructors

  • ScribeZone® technology uses a unique process that lets instructors upload multimedia files, segment the audio and video into discrete parts and then create activities based on the media. 

 

  • The audio, video and transcript are automatically synchronized as the instructor creates segments.

 

  • Lessons involve students listening, watching videos, reading transcripts and completing a variety of interactive tasks revolving around the media content.

  • Instructors can create lessons in any language.  ScribeZone® supports foreign language input for left-to-right and right-to-left languages as well as Korean, Japanese and Chinese.

  • Students can play and replay  the media and can slow down or speed up the playback rate to isolate sounds as small as a word or even a syllable, so they can completely understand what is being said. 

 

  • Instructors can embed a wide range of activities in the transcript including fill-in-the-blank or cloze (words, phrases or sentences), multiple choice, true-false and short answer/essay questions about the content.

  • Instructors can design differentiated learning to fit the needs of mixed level classrooms with scaffolded activities and by adding hints, comments, and hyperlinks for background information or research.

 

  • Using ScribeZone®, students can work at their own pace, focus on their own problem spots and relisten/reread as needed.

  • Students work independently and employ learning preferences they are comfortable with.

  • ScribeZone® has a sophisticated media playback system that is very responsive and provides superior media and text navigation. This feature greatly assists instructors when creating lessons and reduces student frustration when completing activities.

 

  • ScribeZone® provides the opportunity for students to work with grammar and vocabulary in action instead of completing canned textbook exercises or listening to a lecture.

 

  • The media playback system also enables focused reading and listening and increases attention to detail resulting in deeper learning
