WeVu for
Language Learning

If you're teaching or learning languages, audio and video assignments mean more practice and better practice. 

What are you waiting for?

Learners use their phones to record audio or video as they speak, dialogue, or present.  

How are Language educators using WeVu?

  • For very short pronunciation exercises where the instructor uploads a video or audio clip and students imitate. The teacher can give precise feedback to each student that the student can replay over and over.
  • For exercises, taking the tedium of assessing students out of the classroom.
  • Turning any YouTube video into a site of student engagement. They can answer a set of questions as comments on specific moments in the videos. Use films or travel videos.
  • For testing students' presentations or responses to prompts.
  • To let students peer review their group role-playing or skits.

Easy video sharing and pinpoint feedback for better learning.

This is Research Supported Innovation

Incredibly simple. 

In one platform,

students record and upload,
and teachers give feedback and assessment.

See and hear students practice. Without being there.

See them practice and give feedback across time and space

Huge benefits for language schools

Everyone knows there isn't enough time to hear students practicing enough.  We can ask them to speak outside class, but they just don't do enough. So give video homework. You don't have to watch every minute; this just makes them practice. 

You don't need to be there

WeVu uses students’ phones or program webcams as recording equipment. Videos and audio exercises get uploaded to the cloud, helping you get a handle on the challenge of limited instructor time and limited space

Phones and the Cloud. Simple.

It's easy for students to self-record and upload audio and videos. And just as easy for faculty to easily go through students’ practice and give pointed, personal, time-stamped feedback. Students already record everything, so let's meet them where they already are.

WeVu was built at UBC.

5000 language students use it every year on the UBC campus.

Students and teachers use WeVu in Japanese, Polish, Korean, English, Chinese, and German classes at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.

WeVu is built for peers, teachers, and coaches
to give feedback easily and effectively

WeVu is also a powerful, all-purpose video management system for your program, college, school, university, or business

But we care more that learners are practicing and getting feedback. The fact that WeVu does old-fashioned watch-and-learn video is just a bonus.
