Rehabilitation of Hindi Video Materials, Volume 2
Web

Description

This project rehabilitated selected Hindi video materials listed on the priority list formulated by the teachers of Hindi at the Hindi & Urdu workshop organized by SALRC in January, 2003. We restored and enhanced the quality and pedagogic utility of the following widely used Hindi materials by converting them into digital format and adding new exercises (including pre and post activities) and multimedia learning tools. These preserved and enhanced the quality of fading video materials. Also, it enhanced their pedagogic value because students can now interact with the materials in a fashion suitable to their learning styles. Moreover, they will be able to move at their own pace and use them from any location. Although, the main objective of the selected materials is to develop speaking and listening skills, they will enhance reading and writing skills also. Students now have the opportunity to read the Hindi transcriptions and some of the tasks would require them to write in Hindi. For easy distribution, finished materials will be made available on CD-ROM (PC format) and Web formats.

Description

Our proposal is to rehabilitate and refresh the excellent pedagogical learning resources developed at Cornell by constructing a web-based course in natural language Nepali. We produced a beginner-level online course and glossary in Nepali Unicode for self-study of both spoken and literary Nepali in a natural language environment. Using web authoring tools, we created an integrated set of enhanced multimedia instructional materials for Nepali.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination
