SmartClass+ is a digital language learning platform developed by Robotel Inc., a Canadian company based in bilingual Montréal. The overall mandate for SmartClass+ is to help language teachers orchestrate language learning activities for their students, and to help those students learn a new language.
When this new platform was first conceived, the primary goal was to make the system easy-to-use for the average language teacher. This is critical, as one of the biggest obstacles in adopting new technologies in the classroom is system usability.
Another key concept for the SmartClass+ platform was to make it as flexible as possible in accommodating different types of user devices:. Essentially, the idea was to be able to mix and match Windows PCs, Macs, iPads, Android tablets and Smart phones in the same classroom.
The third major objective was to expand access to language learning activities outside of the walls of the classroom, so that students could continue practicing and developing their language skills at home. This objective also included support for Internet-based access for teachers, to enable reviewing and grading student assignments from home.
As they say, when learning a new language, the more you practice, the more proficient you become. SmartClass+ helps students hone their language skills on an any-time, any-place, any-device basis.
