EDUKWEST on tour has always had a special feel to it and as much as I like connecting with great start-up people via Skype, I have to say that I truly enjoy visiting companies when I have the opportunity to do so.
Episode 63 is such an on tour video, I’ve met with Michel Nizon and team of Edulang at their office in Morlaix, France. Yes, innovation can happen in the most remote places and I love that this is possible thanks to working online, connecting with people and the possibility of finding customers all around the world!
Brad Patterson who is Edulang’s community manager introduced me to their latest product called SnaPanda.
SnaPanda as Edulang describe it is the dictionary of the 21st century. It is an application currently available for Android phones and soon to be found in the iTunes store as well.
The app is designed to assist adults when preparing for one of the standardized tests in English in the way that you take you mobile phone, you scan a word and you’ll automatically get its definition and further examples on how to use it in context.
You also have the option to save it and to add it to your custom list of vocabulary for test prep. Brad demos the functions of SnaPanda extensively during our EDUKWEST, so that I believe you’ll get a good feeling for the product.
I think, he’s found the ideal job for him and is very passionate about what he does. So besides his work for Edulang you might have a look at his general activity in ESL and EFL, he tweets @brad5patterson.
