Students want to be able to communicate with others in their new language, to have meaningful and productive—not perfect—conversations. As a result, they need frequent and varied opportunities to engage in interpersonal communication activities in their learned language.
The Supersite offers a wealth of communication tools—Partner Chat, Video Chat, Live Chat, and Forums—that help students lower their affective filter while providing meaningful opportunities for self-expression in authentic, real-life contexts.
Everything you need to plan, teach, and assess. There’s no need to spend time searching for authentic content or creating activities or assessments—the Supersite has the best language learning tools right at your fingertips.
Spend your time teaching, not trying to solve technology issues. With the Supersite, you’ll never have to worry about the site going down—no other publisher has our record of 99.9% uptime. And if you or your students do have technology questions, we make sure that help is available every step of way.
With the Supersite, you can easily shape the curriculum to fit your instructional goals and teaching preferences. Create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests—or choose from a wealth of publisher-created content—much of which is automatically graded, allowing you to spend less time grading, and more time teaching.
A comprehensive gradebook with enhanced reporting functionality makes it easy for instructors to manage courses efficiently. Diagnostics within the Supersite provide unique insight into class and student performance. With a single click, you can identify the most difficult concepts, spot vulnerable students, and make adjustments on the fly.
Developed specifically for language teaching and learning, the Supersite focuses on student outcomes. We make it easy for students to identify areas for improvement, and provide them with the tools that engage and motivate them to proficiency. Helping them reach that “a-ha!” moment is what we do.
Today’s learners are constantly on the move, often balancing personal, work, and academic responsibilities. Whether they attend school full-time or take courses when they can fit them into their work schedule, it’s critical that learning takes place at a time and format that works for them. Available 24/7 on any internet-connected device, the Supersite lets students learn anywhere, anytime.
It takes more than words on a screen to catch—and keep—the attention of today’s multi-tasking students. We built the Supersite knowing that no two students are the same, providing a wealth of multimedia and activity types that appeal to all types of learners. From authentic short films and native-language literature, to animated grammar tutorials and episodic video—the Supersite has it all.
Because learning never stops, the Supersite is now mobile-friendly, allowing students to do their classwork and homework anywhere from their mobile devices.
