AN EASY-TO-USE SUITE OF AUDIO LEARNING TOOLS AT STUDENTS’ FINGERTIPS
Reading, writing, and study tools provide an audio-enhanced learning experience.
An easy-to-access extension allows for offline reading of Microsoft documents.
“Ensuring that our courses are both multimedia rich and suitable for all learners is something that is central to our mission. ReadSpeaker was a natural fit because it gives all of our students an audio option. ReadSpeaker’s integration with the D2L Learning Environment made it easy for VHS to implement the browser-based solution. Within seconds, the organization enabled it on a course level and within all lesson documents, so VHS students can have all course web pages and documents read to them with one click of a button. Since implementing the technology, we’ve been encouraged by how popular it’s been.”
– Storie Walsh, Director of Instructional Technology, Virtual High School
