Lingobee is hot!

The dissemination activities have increased towards the end of the SIMOLA project. These include presentations of Lingobee and the results of some of the user studies at conferences and seminars. Lingobee is generally liked by the audiences and several people would like to try it in different ways. At the beginning of the project, who would have thought that Lingobee could have so many innovative uses? Here are some:

–          A repository for concepts in digital story telling.

–          To describe concepts for children with learning disabilities.

–          Norwegian students exposed to unfamiliar English terminology at university.

–          A technology to support capturing content during a field activity where the learners are outside the class and mobile.

Interestingly enough, some of these ideas are not in supporting language learning. All these wonderful ideas and stimuli that have been shared by the varied audiences of Lingobee are very inspiring and they clearly identify the potential of Lingobee. It is a pity that the SIMOLA project ends soon. If only we had another year to go!
