I’d like to share some exciting news about a site license that Arapahoe Community College purchased called Kurzweil 3000. This software is FREE to all students, staff, and faculty. Kurzweil 3000 can meet the needs of English Language Learners by offering multi-sensory support, opportunities to hear authentic text across all subject areas, pronunciation and vocabulary instruction, fluency training, multiple exposures to the same text, note-taking features that improve comprehension, writing and proofreading, and independent access to material. The translation features in text or audio have a plethora of language options. If you would like to be registered to use this software on your computer, please contact eLearning by calling 303.797.5080 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
