• Our patented 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 customize lessons in any language or subject.  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).  Templates help create multiple choice, true-false and short answer/essay questions about the content. Vocabulary quizzes can also be embedded.

  • Lessons designed with ScribeZone® allow instructors to 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® lessons, students can work at their own pace, focus on their own problem spots and re-listen/reread as needed.

  • Students work independently and can employ learning preferences of their choosing.

  • Our ScribeZone® platform provides a sophisticated media playback system that is very responsive and provides superior media and text navigation. This feature greatly reduces student frustration when completing activities.

 

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

 

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