In particular it duplicates or even surpasses the capabilities of traditional language lab software. The big differences are 1) its price (more than 1/10 the cost in our case), 2) greater flexibility in terms of use and format support and 3) user friendliness.

    Agreed. Very useful in Biology, Psychology and PE. Nice find.
    What did you use to access this site? I used Google Chrome, as suggested on the site, but every time I try to look at it, it refuses to load. I emailed Google to let them know, too.
    Hi Holly, you need to upgrade to the latest chrome beta.
    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was using the latest edition (downloaded it yesterday). Well, I guess I'll just have to wait to see what Google says. Thanks anyway!
