Openwords

Description

OER language learning webapp

Openwords is building an open source language learning webapp and a platform that allows teachers to build lessons for this webapp.

When complete teachers will be able to author lessons (for any language combination) and organize those lessons into a course for their students. Teachers will be able to follow student performance on their lessons outside of the classroom. The lessons consist of individual problems of a variety of types including sentence translation, hearing/listening, vocabulary, conjugation, and fill in the blank.

Openwords is a social enterprise, or a for-profit business that legally pursues a social mission not shareholder value as its highest priority. Openwords hopes to work with universities and governments that want to build excellent OER curricula.
