Kallylang

Product Overview

KallyLang language lab gives you a suite of activities and features never before seen on Mac, allowing you to deliver personalized and fun learning to all your students.

 

Textual exercises

KallyLang offers a double text editor function which is particularly useful for translation thanks to its double window interface. The chat function allows conversations between one or more pupils, centred theme or question set by the teacher. Student output is collected and can be evaluated.

Audio exercises

The students can listen, record themselves, repeat and translate an audio file, video or even text. Kallylang also offers the option of group debates, or teacher-led debate. Teacher-led debate can be recorded and then distributed for analysis.

Video exercises

Students can add subtitles, dub, analyze and answer questions or complete fill-in-the-blank exercises. Using their own webcam, the students can teach themselves to communicate more dynamically and, for example, create a multimedia CV. Managed Web browsing: Internet browsing can be unrestricted, limited to the learning institution’s network, or equally be limited to specific hyperlink in order to minimize student distraction.

Kallylang Examples

Teacher Control

The teacher can monitor students, discreetly listen to them individually or as a group and take screenshots remotely. ARD (Apple remote desktop) allows the teacher to control the student station. The teacher also has the option of blocking all programs other than KallyLang.

Grouping

By using working groups, the teacher can offer exercises adapted to the needs of each group. Syncing with iTunes: KallyLang allows items to be recorded in iPodcompatible format. It is therefore possible to send items to students’ iTunes, then sync them to the students’ iPod. Supports a variety of formats: KallyLang uses QuickTime technology, providing access to a large variety of multimedia formats.

Go further

Thanks to software already available in all Apple computers and other accessible software, creative teachers will enjoy the option to create their own lesson content, Podcasts, audio clips and video recordings, allowing the use of perfectly adapted teaching resources.
