The Training Express project consists of developing a cutting edge virtual language learning system known as ISUS (ispeakuspeak). By project completion, September 2013, ISUS will be one of the select, if not the leading, language learning system that incorporates all of the following facets:
-equipped with the latest virtual learning technologies
-applies a new methodology to virtual learning
- aimed at language training for professional development needs
- provides this specialized training for learning five different languages
- compatible with blended learning programmes
- supported by integral international training programme management
- is certified according to international CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) quality standards
Our project can be easily summarized by looking at three main concepts. Innovation – it is both technologically and pedagogically cutting edge. Social benefit – it promotes labour insertion, professional development and social integration. International – it promotes global training on an anytime, anywhere basis. Our clients will benefit from the guarantee of quality and effectiveness that Training Express has become known for and they will have at their disposal one of the most innovative, effective, cost efficient and technologically advanced language learning systems available. Students will be able to access innovative, quality, specialized language training from anywhere around the globe at a fraction of the cost.
VET learners currently have limited access to language training specific to their needs:
-Traditional classrooms don´t provide sufficient geographic access.
-E-learning has high abandonment rates, high cost, and technological impediments.
Innovative virtual learning that is:
-Cost effective (available to groups).
-Innovative and effective (incorporates human element between student and trainer).
-Technologically cutting edge.
-Available on international scale.
-Increased geographic access: virtual group learning capacity eliminates availability barriers between students and trainer.
-Low Income VET learner incorporation (the unemployed and immigrants) Current training cost for 1 student, distributed amongst a group, significantly improves access through reduced cost ratios.
-Pedagogical effectiveness: real time virtual classes reduces course abandonment rates.
-Certification: Quality guaranteed by CEFR standards.
-Sustainability: Continued course creation via web 2.0 ICT tools and trainer cross training.
-Employment access and social integration: Course contents focused on labor insertion and social integration through acquiring foreign language skills.
