Waltham, Mass., July 30, 2007 — The Soliloquy Learning website, www.soliloquylearning.com, now has a new look. Expanding the collection of case studies and the research behind the company´s speech recognition reading program, Soliloquy Reading Assistant, the updated site has become even more useful to educators. Audio and video demonstrations of the program and students using it contribute to the experience.
"Our goal with the new website was to give educators the ability to go to one central location to learn about reading fluency and how Soliloquy Reading Assistant helps students across the country," said Louise Dube, President of Soliloquy Learning. "The inclusion of research, demonstrations and documented success stories create a wealth of information we feel will help engage new visitors."
One of the additions to the website is the Educator´s page, which presents research on how Soliloquy Reading Assistant helps students to develop reading fluency, build vocabulary and improve comprehension. This section also allows teachers and administrators to preview the program´s various functions, like its reporting capabilities, which are demonstrated via an online tutorial.
The website´s expanded resources section offers an application template for educators, who want to apply for grants to purchase the Soliloquy Reading Assistant for their school or district. Parts of this section also emphasize the effectiveness of the program for English language learners, special education students, and adult learners.
The improved "News and Events" area showcases the print and broadcast coverage the company and Soliloquy Reading Assistant have received. Press releases and upcoming events that company officials will be attending are posted as well.
