Presenter  Title  Summary  Links 
Claire Bradin Siskin, Edvista, USA  Audio Tutorial for LiveCode  LiveCode is well suited for playing and recording audio files - important capabilities in creating materials for learning and teaching languages. The tutorial, created in LiveCode itself, includes instructions as well as real-time demonstrations for each function. This tool is available as a free download.   
Thomas Robb, Kyoto Sangyo University (Emeritus), Japan   Two Free Apps for Language Enhancement: PeerEval and MReader  The presenter will demonstrate two free apps, 1) PeerEval allows students to rate their peer's presentations in real-time and presents them with a summary of the evaluations of their presentation on their own device and 2) MReader.org, a browser-based app that serves short 10-item randomized quizzes to your students so that they can prove to you and to themselves that they have read and basically understood their ER books.   
James Hunter, Gonzaga University, USA  Managing IEP Data and Tracking Learner Output  University-based IEPs and other language programs struggle to track student data efficiently for the purposes of reporting, trend analysis, and accreditation. Existing solutions such as Banner are extremely expensive to implement and to adapt to the needs of individual programs. I will demonstrate an online, mobile-ready platform currently under development.
