In the session, Dr. Varghese explained how English teachers can utilise digital language lab laboratory in classrooms for effective language training. Emphasising the significance of this virtual platform, he said that it is a digital audio recording software suite installed in classroom for productive language learning using multimedia resources. This tool which provides centralized control to the instructor facilitates them to assign lesson, listen to the students and give feedback to students as they speak. Teacher can either select individual students or a group or the whole class, and can simply access the recorded audio of students afterward.

The workshop was really an inspiration for NELTA participants to make use of multimedia language lab in communication training.
