Session Description

In this workshop-demonstration, we will introduce the latest version of our open-source web tool, A National Virtual Language Lab (ANVILL). Now available as a mobile app as well as an LTI-compatible desktop app, ANVILL is designed to serve language teachers wishing to design interactive speech-based exercises and students looking for an easy way to record and get feedback on their oral-aural progress.

Our goal for this presentation is to both introduce the many new features of the tool but also to use feedback from a discerning audience like NW eLearners to gauge how well we’re meeting expectations for a next generation, language-focused tool. Collectively we should all leave with a better understanding of what language faculty are looking for in modern speech-based software, and how developers and instructional designers can best respond to their needs.
