Speak Everywhere - An online oral practice/assessment platform

Do your language students get enough oral practice opportunities? Do you assess their oral skills as often as you like? Have you felt that basic oral practice is difficult to do in the classroom? (Calling on individual students is extremely inefficient, and practicing in chorus is not effective because you cannot monitor each student.) Have you wished that you could give your students speaking homework assignments? Speak Everywhere is a viable solution to these problems.

Developed in the TELL Center, this system is commercially available on the internet to any language instructor. Details of the system including demo videos are available at the following website.
