“This is major step for the company,” says John Dicker, CEO of EASY, the ESL Series. “Launching EASY, the ESL Series as an online system opens the system to broader use all across our customer base in the U.S. Our customers have always been constrained by the DVD format. Now they can deliver our material – videos, lesson plans, practices and tests – in multiple sites at all levels.”
EASY Online enables schools to harness the power of technology and enhance their existing or future ESL programs. EASY Online is built on an on-demand web 2.0 platform that brings high quality video content directly to the student’s computer screen. Schools with multiple sites or distance learning programs can take full advantage of the virtual classroom and provide courses via the internet to their students. Granting remote access to students and teachers greatly increases productivity and student success. Schools leveraging the EASY Online classroom are able to allocate resources more strategically, increase the number of classes offered to students and see immediate cost savings.
“What is truly exciting is to be able to offer all the modules of EASY, the ESL Series, with over 450 video lessons, globally. International markets have always been a challenge, but EASY Online can now be delivered all over the world with lessons focusing on the English used in hospitality and visitor serving industries – a perfect fit for international distribution in areas where tourism, and major business and sporting events occur – because no matter where you come from, English – American English – is the language you’ll use. And that’s what we provide.”
EASY Online incorporates the existing quality curriculum found in the other three EASY, the ESL Series products, EASY Part 1: The Beginner Series, EASY Part 2: Community Essentials, and EASY at Work, into a single convenient location. Key features of the new EASY Online include:
- A built-in “Listen and Speak” function that provides students with recording and playback capabilities allowing users to practice speaking and listening to their own recorded voice so they can analyze and improve their spoken English
- DVD-quality video lessons for ESL learners of all levels (beginning, intermediate and vocational) easily accessible and viewed from an internet browser
- Comprehensive reporting and online classroom management tools for administrators and teachers so that they can access student progress reports with a click of a button and make any changes to their ESL program in one central location.
