CASE STUDY

Empowering teachers and supporting English learners with one ingenious app.

    Overview

    Language Muse is an NLP-based educational platform for teachers working with U.S. students who face the challenge of learning English as their second language. It automatically generates ready-to-use language activities based on texts provided by the teacher-users. In this project, 10Clouds took care of design and web development. To improve the UI, we created user journeys, personas profiles, test scenarios, and conducted usability studies.

    Problem

    ETS contacted us to help them build a product supporting U.S. teachers who face a difficult challenge. Apart from teaching their own subject, they also need to help students build the academic English-language skills needed for deeper reading comprehension in Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts. U.S. teachers face a difficult challenge. Apart from teaching their own subject, they also need to help their international students build the academic English-language skills needed for deeper reading comprehension in Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts.

    Solution

    To solve this problem, in collaboration with education and computer science researchers at ETS, we’ve developed an educational platform that helps create learning materials based on content related to the original subject - Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts. Language Muse Helps teachers to create and assign writing and reading activities that support english learners and struggling readers. After uploading text, Language Muse processes it in a second and automatically generates activities to select from. It also has a text library build in and let users filter it by tags. Students can be grouped into classes, which allows teachers to efficiently manage them and track their progress.

    Key Functionalities

    Online activity checks

    Teachers are able to track students’ progress quickly and easily with automatic activity checks. The results of each test are saved in the platform, which enables an instant comparison of previous and current test results. This helps teachers make better decisions about next steps in the education program.
