It is a state-of-the-art digital language Lab that creates singularly unique learning, mentoring, assessing and a comprehensive utility environment deployable instantly and accessible across an institution onto any digital device as a single online/offline interactive platform for the first time! As a metered service (pay-per-user), it is a truly cost-effective, invaluable and ingenious solution minus the added costs of expensive hardware and an invaluable asset for every institution of learning.
As a 100% self-learning, mentoring assessing and utility platform, it offers the flexibility of being deployed either offline or online. In both cases, all features remain almost identical except that in the latter (online) deployment, the Speech-to-Text feature is also available.
When deployed offline, the platform will be installed on an institution's server and can be accessed by students independently with their assigned user-ID and password from anywhere on campus at a time of their convenience over Wi-Fi via the institution's intranet or Local Area Network (LAN). This means that all users can access the program whenever they are present on campus. But when deployed online, the platform will be hosted by the service provider and can be accessed by all users 24/7 from a location of their convenience anywhere in the world!
The platform does not require a dedicated laboratory with expensive hardware and/or dedicated staff members to manage it. It need not be scheduled into the institution's weekly timetable as a mandatory "classroom" session. In Mentor-led modes, the teachers can assign lessons and tests during their free time and students can access the same at any time of their choice.
