What can you do with Sanako Lab 300?
Convert your Existing Audio Tapes
Save time and expense due to the way that Lab 300 automatically digitizes and prompts you to save your files every time you use any taped material within your lessons. Build up your library of digitized materials for use within the lesson or for self-access purposes.
You can speak to the entire class or to a selected group, as well as listen to a selected student and participate in a student’s activity. You can select students to work in groups, pairs, or to simulate telephone calls to each other.
Lab 300 counts and marks the answers to multiple-choice exercises, with results immediately displayed on a graph using the Response Analyzer function. You can save Students’ voice responses to oral tests on a cassette tape or copied digitally onto the server.
Manage the Classroom
With Lab 300, you can launch and close programs, copy and launch files on student PCs, shut down, restart and logoff the student PCs, and control the students’ web browsers.
Use External Sources
The Program Source Control is integrated directly into the Lab 300 Teacher Software. For example, an external audio or video recorder or a CD player on the teacher’s PC can be used as a Program Source. Four different program sources can be transferred to four different groups simultaneously.
The file packaging feature allows you to package or zip material that is created outside of the school environment. This gives you greater flexibility in creating teaching material, as it can be done off-site, e.g. at home, and easily used at school during classroom teaching.
With two tracks for use – one for the program, the other for student recordings – digital learning material is played on the program track, and students can record their responses on the student track.

“Usually beginners are afraid to speak in front of others. But with Sanako Lab 300, they can practice alone; later on, they have the confidence to speak in front of others.
