We are really pleased to announce that we have agreed with EnglishCentral to bring their speaking platform to Moodle.
Using EnglishCentral, students can learn words, practice speaking and track their progress, using interactive video lessons. It is extremely popular with English learners because there are over 12,000 videos to lear with content and game-like instant feedback.
With EnglishCentral students:
• WATCH videos with transcripts and a bilingual dictionary. They can click on any word in the video to study it.
• LEARN the words selected from the videos with learning vocabulary tools.
• SPEAK using EnglishCentral’s Intellispeech℠ assessment technology. Students get instant feedback on pronunciation and fluency.
The first version of the EnglishCentral Plugin was developed by Poodll’s Justin Hunt (aka PoodllGuy) in 2015. Last year(2018) Prof. Gordon Bateson from Kochi University of Technology in Japan developed a terrific updated version with lots of new features. Poodll will be responsible for the maintenance and support of the EnglishCentral plugin on Moodle.
