Linguamix Aditorium is a software to help a teacher give an engaging language learning session to a large group of students in an environment rich in social interactions. It can operate in almost any type of room; not necessarily a traditional computer laboratory or even a dedicated classroom.
On the teacher's side, it requires a computer, preferably a laptop, and a video projector. Student interaction happens through their own smartphones, turned into input devices. Cellphones communicate with the teacher's laptop via wifi.
It is up to the teacher to chose whether Linguamix session scores are private to each student or whether the session is a public competition for the highest score; a multi-player game. Response reaction time can be measured down to milliseconds and factored into the final score. More importantly, each student's reaction time can be analyzed at a later time to draw interesting conclusions, such as one's confidence in responding.
Linguamix Auditorium is obviously a much more cost-effective solution than any one-to-one computer setup, considering hardware purchase price and long-term maintenance. A laptop will work just as well as a desktop computer, meaning this entire language laboratory can be setup almost anywhere, moved from class to class, possibly packed into a suitcase to be hand-carried and installed at a remote location for the duration of a session — all by the teacher himself.
