Speexx product updates: Spring 2021
With a goal to streamline this process, Speexx combines AI-powered technology with new updates to deliver an unparalleled digital language learning and communication training solution, available wherever your employees may be and whenever they need support. Now, we are making it easier than ever for your business to empower communication with these new powerful updates to our Speexx platform.
A whole new virtual classroom experience
As more and more companies look to online solutions to provide for their training needs, many have found themselves dissatisfied with the quality of the solutions. Not only that, many simply cannot work with these virtual communications providers as they fail to meet required compliance measures. Relying on third party platforms for online learning means more work for you and your users and less control over your data. That’s why we created Speexx RTC ™.
Speexx RTC ™ (Real-Time Communication) is the latest technology built exclusively by Speexx for enhanced language learning. With Speexx RTC ™, the virtual classroom experience is brought to a new level: clearer sound, higher video resolution, fast connection and amazing content. In addition, users can enjoy breakout rooms and interactive whiteboard access during each virtual classroom session.
This advanced technology works in every browser, on mobile and is fully integrated with the Speexx language learning platform, no additional plug-ins needed. Simply have your users sign up for a virtual classroom session and they are ready to go with Speexx RTC ™.
Your go-to resource for soft skills training
Assessing skills levels has been a hot topic lately as we continue to work to fill the skills gaps at our organizations. However, one common skills training that is often overlooked is soft skills training. In comparison to technical skills training where there is more emphasis on specific knowledge and abilities, soft skills training focuses on what we might call ‘people skills’, where there is more emphasis on emotional intelligence and behavior.
For this crucial skillset, we are introducing Speexx Skills Guru ™, the first complete resource that combines digital language skills training with professional development coaching.
With the Skills Guru, your advanced users can find engaging coaching sessions and content on topics such as social collaboration, working from home and time management. The Skills Guru provides a personal experience for your users using our smart algorithms and artificial intelligence for reliable content-to-user matching.
Milestone tests for tracking progress
Now in Speexx, we have introduced Milestone Tests, which are a great (and optional) way to get a quick check in on progress. This is an additional progress check for users when reaching a CEFR level milestone in their language learning journey. So, if you are looking for more indications on how your users are doing in Speexx, look no further than Milestone Tests.
Commitment to accessibility
The internet has opened more doors to knowledge for more people and continues to do so. What that means, however, is that more businesses on the internet need to take a step back and ensure that their online products are accessible to people of all abilities.
Speexx is 100% committed to accessibility regulations and believes that a great online experience should be something that everyone can enjoy. Proudly, Speexx meets WCAG 2.1 accessibility compliance, offering a better learning experience, regardless of ability.
More languages available in the Speexx Portal
We at Speexx are no strangers to an international and multilingual atmosphere. With over 40 nationalities (and growing), we are very much at home with our international presence.
On that note, we are happy to continue to add more interface languages to the Speexx portal. Most recently, we added Czech to the list of 14 existing interface and instruction languages. In addition, we are also introducing the German user interface for German learners (for all levels). For advanced training, be sure to check out the new challenger mode, where your users can test their language proficiency using just one language for instruction and language learning.
Coming soon to Speexx: More updates for advanced digital language learning
The updates to Speexx don’t stop here. This year, we are taking Speexx to a whole new level. You can expect to see some great advancements to the Speexx portal as we continue to work towards our goal of providing the best language and communication training experience for enterprises like yours.
Without giving too much away, here are a few updates you can already get excited about.
As you may know, Speexx’ language learning platform is based on the CEFR (Common European Framework of References for Languages). Soon, the Speexx platform will provide more rewards-based elements and guidance for your users, making language learning even more motivational and fun.
In addition, we are taking analytics to a whole new level. Speexx Manager is our state-of-the-art learning analytics tool specifically made for HR and L&D managers. This year, Speexx Manager will undergo a refresh and provide even more user data on KPIs, data usage and more – all under one roof. Stay tuned for more updates.
We are always looking for more feedback on how Speexx can make language learning easier for your workforce, so be sure to share your thoughts with us. You can also stay up to date on what’s upcoming here at Speexx by checking our Speexx Exchange Blog or by following our Speexx LinkedIn account.
