Babelium: interactive video and audio recording
Babelium is an open source video platform aimed at second language learning. This plugin adds a new submission type to the Moodle assignments. It allows student to record their faces and/or voice (using their microphones and webcams) for:
Dubbing a role - Dubbing a role in a film-scene, or any ordinary video, using subtitles (or without them)
Reading aloud - Reading aloud (isolated words or fragments)
Interactive chat - Answering whatever they are asked in an interactive video-exercise
Discuss a topic - Developing a spoken story (free speech). This video is in Basque. As you can see, it is possible to help your students using picture tips while they are speaking.
All these exercises must be previously prepared by the teacher and uploaded to http://babeliumproject.com in order to use them with Moodle.
If you want to see it in action and test the plugin (as a teacher or as a student) before installing it, you can use our test server:
