Choose the Best Activity for Your Learning Goals

Use the built-in activites in XpressLab to create lessons, practice exercises, drills, and tests.

Teacher Presentations

The most versatile activity type. Use it to create lessons and learning resources with multimedia elements. Get and keep your learners’ attention, make the lesson more memorable, and enhance understanding and retention. Include self-assessment questions to increase long-term recall of the material.

Practice Exercises

Create drills and tests with objective questions. Learners get instant feedback on their answers. Let students practice in a low-stakes environment to solidify and consolidate their learning. Speech Recognition encourages speech practice in the target language. Practice exercises can be converted into Standard Tests.

Standard Tests

Create tests with both objective and subjective questions for marking. Useful for diagnostic, formative, benchmark, and summative testing and proficiency assessments. Use results to adjust your lessons and better support learners, or to screen applicants.

Oral Discussion

A shared activity where all students in a course can record oral responses to a prompt or question and respond to each other’s answers. This activity strengthens and assesses extended speech as well as higher-level thinking and communication skills.

Student Journal

Let students use extended speech by recording oral responses up to 5 minutes long. This private forum accessible only by each student and the teacher is useful for reflection, mentoring, and higher-level language activities. It can also be used as a portfolio that shows a student’s progress throughout the term.

Dropbox Assignment

Have students work on assignments on other platforms (such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and others) and submit them through a Dropbox Assignment. This is a more convenient and organized way of collecting assignments than email.

Student Presentations

Students practice their language skills and demonstrate mastery of a subject by creating their own multimedia presentation. Strengthen their skills in communication, persuasion, and public speaking while building confidence and independence.
