Meet Alex – Product Strategist at ELTjam. He tells us about his background, what first attracted him to LXD, what he’s currently excited about in the field and the best learning experience of his life.
We sat down with our Digital Content Partner, Dan Shepherd to talk about using content marketing to grow your business. Dan, who has experience in both ELT and content marketing, lets us in on what content marketing is, why it’s important for young companies and how you can start creating educational content that will help you turn leads into customers.
I could clearly see the how EdTech was starting to affect ELT and I wasn’t going to resist it or surrender to it. Instead, I wanted to get engaged. The question was … HOW?
We speak to Scott Granville, award-winning writer and producer, about his mission to create dramatic narrative videos for English language learners …
Tom Rees, a teacher-turned-YouTuber gives an overview of the YouTube scene in ELT, and shares some examples of channels to check out.
We believe that artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and natural language processing are going to have a massive impact on ELT, and probably more rapidly than many might expect. A fascinating example of this is a new product from Cambridge called Write & Improve, which aims to provide automated help with writing. Diane Nicholls is one of the team behind the product, and we asked her to tell us more about it. In this in-depth interview, Diane talks about how the system works and, perhaps even more interestingly, how it was developed and what was learned in the process. We think it encapsulates a lot of where ELT is heading – both in what the product itself is trying to do, but also in the way the project has brought together the worlds of ELT, academic research and technology in a way we haven’t seen before.
