North Branford, Connecticut, June 6, 2012. SANS Inc., the developer and exclusive licensor of Sony language learning software solutions, has released the latest Version 12.2 of the Sony Virtuoso™ digital language lab software, featuring their new “E” design for the language instructor’s interface.
The new design incorporates a “modern” aesthetic, with a soft colour palette, and easy to view buttons that are configurable to 4×3 or 16×9 screen resolutions. It has retained its “simple-to-use”, intuitive functionality that has been an integral component of the “Classic or C” design that the Sony Virtuoso software has had since its inception, making it simple for language teachers to use the technology immediately to maximize class time and student productivity.
Added instructional enhancements have also been incorporated. Among them is a new tool to monitor student progress by enabling a “thumbnail view” of student screens. Language teachers can now globally view all student screens on the Virtuoso interface or optionally in a separate window. The ability to zoom in on any student screen to get details provides a quick instructional transition to assist individual students on the fly.
