What can you do with Sanako Study 700?
Assign Discussion Activities
You can unobtrusively listen to student conversations, allowing them to feel free to express themselves using their own words, rather than rehearsed textbook responses. Pair and Group discussions can be set-up in only a few seconds, changing pairs takes only a few mouse clicks.
Use Voice Insert Mode
In the Voice Insert mode, gaps can be inserted automatically into source material, which means that you do not have to leave silent parts for the answers in the recordings – any audio file can be used. This unique feature allows you to create exercises during playback, and to give oral feedback on student recordings after a test.
Divide Students into Six Different Sessions
Study 700 has up to six sessions. You can initiate different activities for the students and use different methods for each session to individualize learning. You can put more advanced students in self-study session while focusing on the students who require more support. In the Self-Access mode each student works independently.
You can monitor and listen to selected students’ work and view their screens. Screen monitoring allows the teacher to view the screen activity of multiple student workstations in real time seeing how assignments progress. All student screens can be viewed simultaneously as thumbnails.
Screen Transfer with Audio and Marker Tool
You can share the contents of your screen and talk to the students at the same time, e.g. show a video from the internet. You can even transfer your screen and audio to a single student or the entire class. You can highlight screen items with the Marker Tool in order to make sure that students are concentrating on essentials.
Control Student PCs
Study 700 gives you the control over student PCs. You can black out the student screens and/or lock the cursors and keyboards to draw their attention. You can also block the use of Internet or other applications to help students focus on a given task.
You can increase the functionalities of Study 700 with optional modules:
MP3 Encoding Module allows you to convert student recordings into more convenient mp3s
Vocabulary Activity Module allows you to create quick vocabulary tests easily. You only need to have a list of vocabulary items ready, and Study 700 will handle the rest.
