Ever wonder what kind of hardware devices can be used as an ESL Audio Kiosk?
Well, now the answer is in the documentation!
Take a look at: http://www.open-esl.org/Kiosk/Documentation/DeviceOptions.html
The new page should also work on SmartPhones
Take a peek!
You can now receive email notifications when new articles are posted to this website!
Find the “Subscribe to Open-ESL.org News / Updates via email” section on the informational “sidebar” (This is the area with white lettering on a black background. On your desktop, it should be at the left side of the screen. On a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the bottom of the screen.)
Just enter your email address in the box, and press the “subscribe” button. You will receive a confirmation email before the subscription becomes active. From that email message, click the “Confirm Follow” button/link.
Once you confirm the subscription, you may be redirected to the “WordPress” subscription/account page. You DO NOT need to set up a WordPress account for your subscription to work!
As always, please let me know if you encounter any difficulties with the subscription process.
There are two audio file “repositories” accessible from within the Kiosk itself. One holds over twenty “ready-made” audio files that a teacher can freely use. The other holds all files that teachers using the Kiosk have loaded using the USB flash drive. These stay in the repository, even after the teacher has removed them from the class’s set of active files.
Documentation on how to use the repositories can be accessed from the Kiosk Documentation web page. Both web and PDF versions of the document are available.
For your convenience, here is a direct link: http://www.open-esl.org/Kiosk/Documentation/LoadingFromRepositories.html
By the way, this new document page should display well on both desktops and mobile devices such as SmartPhone. Please let me know how that works for you!
As always, be sure to report any problems with the documentation, including any needed corrections!
This site- WWW.Open-ESL.org/NewsUpdates is ready and open for business! You can check this site for updates on Kiosk software, and Sandbox content.
