Student console needs to login before starting a session. Students are able to listen to files from their own library, practice and learn. The status bar displays the connection status. Whenever the Teacher console starts, the connection manager in the Student console will automatically locate the teacher and establish the connection with the Teacher. <br />When a student PC connects with the teacher PC, it automatically reads out the lessons list from the Teacher’s Shared Lesson database. Whenever the teacher adds a new file to the shared library, the system sends the new lesson details to the student.

  13. 13. INTERACTIVE TEACHING : <br />The most exclusive feature of LearnSOFT Language Lab Software is that it works like a teacher teaching individual students. When the teacher opens the Interactive Control, the student’s module automatically opens its interactive teaching console and all other open windows are disabled. <br />When the Interactive Control is open the students have no control over their window. When teacher adds a multimedia lesson and starts playing, automatically the entire student consoles will start playing the same lesson. They are not allowed to move the lesson forward orbackward unless the teacher moves the lesson forward or backward. Students cannot close the window unless the teacher closes the window from Teacher Console, when this happens all the students interactive windows will be closed at the same moment. <br />
  14. 14. Advantages <br />Privacy & Effective Learning: - <br />Individual headsets with microphones not only guarantee absolute privacy for student - teacher communications in the multimedia language lab but also ensure effective learning as it encourages even the self - consciously inhibited student to speak with confidence - without being worried about peer - ridicule common in a normal classroom setting. Moreover it reduces the classroom distraction as communication between a particular student and his/her teacher is completely independent of the rest of the group. It benefits to practice and assess any language and develop confidence among the learners. <br />Better Attention & Quicker Comprehension: - <br />The LearnSOFT English Language Lab software is more attention-riveting for the student and increases the pace of comprehension as student coaching is purely based on level of study, grasping power as well as language aptitude among others. <br />Enhances listening skills & Encourages Self-Pacing: - <br />Listening skills are automatically honed and with the added advantage of being able to pace oneself based on comprehension of recordings, the language is imbibed more naturally aiding confident delivery with an immaculate accent. It helps to practice and assess any language and develop confidence among the learners. <br />
  15. 15. LearnSOFT English Language Lab can be broadly categorizes and abbreviated as VITI: <br />1. Versatility- Text, Images, Audio, and Video can easily be integrated and the teacher can remodel and alter materials to fit the needs of a multitude of language teaching programs. <br />2. Interactivity- Students can record their own voice and play back the recordings, interact with each other and the Teacher, and store results. <br />3. Teacher Intervention- The teacher can make student-specific oral comments as well as have real-time control of students’ computers via Teacher’s Console, track student work, and much more... <br />4. Independent Learning - Access to recourses beyond the timetable encourages independent learning. <br />Acoustics: - <br />Irrespective of the seating arrangement in a language laboratory classroom setting, each student- by virtue of being privy to direct sound transmission- receives step- by- step guidance from the teacher to their headsets with crystal clear clarity. <br />REMOTE DESKTOP ACCESS : <br />LearnSOFT Language lab being a networked application, the Teacher acts as the server and necessarily needs to monitor all students. To achieve this, we have introduced an advanced technology - Remote Desktop Viewer. By using this, the teacher is able to capture any student's screen and view the same on his/her console. For future reference teacher can save the file as bit map image. The same can be later viewed on any photo editor or even from Language Lab Remote Desktop Control. This is one of the outstanding features of LearnSOFT Language Lab, and it acts like Remote Surveillance Camera. <br />
  16. 16. Audio & Video Broadcasting<br />File transfer system helps the teacher to send lessons to the students system based on the progress of each student and the student can send back the completed exercise to the teacher for evaluation. The System supports broadcasting of files up to a file size of 2GB and the speed depends upon the network. All types of lesson files [MP3, DAT, MPG, AVI, txt etc] can be sent over the network. The students are able to watch the preview of lessons either directly from the teacher console or by downloading to their local folder. To improve the loading speed and overall efficiency of the program, it is highly recommended to delete all the lessons while quitting the program. <br />
  17. 17. LESSON COMPARING: <br />Lesson comparing means to hear one’s own voice with the experts voice. To compare a lesson, the student must open an audio file to start. This audio file will be used as reference file. When user clicks on record button, the audio will start playing the reference track as well as records the new voice from the student. Simultaneous process will take place. After stopping the comparison, the audio file saves automatically . Compare button will be active if a successful recording is done. To play the recorded lesson just click on the compare button. The system plays both sounds automatically. Thus students/ teacher is able to compare their pronunciation skills. This is another powerful extension to the LearnSOFT Language Lab System <br />
  18. 18. GROUP DISCUSSION : <br />Group Discussion (GD) is an essential part of Career Development. LearnSOFT Language Lab has the most modern group discussion facility. The Teacher is the authorized person (moderator) to start or end a GD at anytime. During group discussion, students are not allowed to do anything more than GD. Control over the student’s are maintained. This helps to keep discipline while talking. <br /> Add multiple students - up to Five <br /> Control the group real time <br /> Disconnect unwanted student <br /> Helps to improve the speaking skills of a student among a group. <br />
  19. 19. MULTIMEDIA SUPPORT : <br />Multimedia files are most useful for teaching any languages. Audio files help the students to study the pronunciation styles, accent etc. Video files can be shown to teach the lip moments. For situational English the teacher can show some flash files. LearnSOFT Language Lab software supports wide variety of multimedia formats available today.Supported File Types: AVI, MPG, DAT ,MP3, Wave, PDF, Doc, PPT ,Txt, swf and Flash Files etc. <br />COMMUNICATION : <br />VOICE CHAT - Full duplex voice chat algorithms are used for two way communication. High voice fidelity and crisper clear sound are produced using Advanced Voice Chat Control. In LearnSOFT Language Lab voice chat controls works like an intercom facility. The Teacher or student is able to call each other directly with one click call button. Hang up buttons are also available. Features depend on the quality of sound card and head phones. <br />
  20. 20. TALK TO ALL STUDENTS : <br />The power of voice communication is beyond imagination. With this principle in mind, we have introduced Talk to All feature. When the teacher wants to tellsomething or teach/lecture all the students at one time - Talk to all opens the voice chat automatically and all the logged in students are automatically connected and a new voice session is started. <br />A message "Teacher is talking to all students.." appears. The Teacher is able to end this session with a simple click. Automatically the student voice chat window gets disconnected. <br />PEER TO PEER TEXT CHAT <br />The term Peer to Peer means direct connection with another PC. Here language lab includes the most flexible and reliable direct chat option. By using this feature teacher is able to chat with each student at a time. For drawing the student’s attention, we have included a buzzer system to teacher console. When teacher clicks the buzz button, the student gets a screen movement effect that cannot be ignored and he easily reacts to the event. <br />

After the examination, each student can view and validate their answer sheets and are also able to view and take print out their answer sheets and brief results. <br />Students can login in to the system using the information provided by the teacher/administrator.
