About Aventuras Chat Tools
With Virtual and Partner Chat Tools integrated within Visa Higher Learning’s innovative learning management system, Supersite, students and teachers can collaborate beyond the classroom, any time. Virtual Chat helps students develop language skills via simulated conversations with native speakers. Pre-recorded prompts expose learners to a variety of authentic accents and help them prepare for real-time chats. For live practice, students can use Partner Chat Tools to pair up for oral language learning. Using these web-based video, audio and text chat tools, students have extended practice opportunities and face-to-face collaboration. The chat interface lets students see who’s online and invite an activity partner. They can record and play back their session unlimited times before submitting it for online grading. As a result, students build confidence while learning at their own pace.
Kurt Gerdenich, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Technology says, “We sincerely thank the Software Information Industry Association (SIIA) and its membership for nominating us as a CODiE award finalist. To be chosen once again among so many dynamic and important companies further strengthens our mission to be the leading educational innovator for language teachers and learners.”
