Dexway expands its offer of e-learning language courses with Dexway Classroom Companion courses. With them, the language division of CAE aims to bring the most positive aspects of e-learning to on-site classroom teaching and to value the figure of the teacher. The new online educational methodologies succeed not only for their time flexibility and the possibilities of adapting to the rhythm of each student, but for taking advantage of new technologies to offer the student an added value: progress statistics, multimedia practices, additional exercises, user communities…
For Dexway, on-site classroom teaching continues to add value to education, but it is important that schools, universities and learning centers make available to their students new characteristic methods of networked classrooms, blended learning (such as Flipped Classroom, Station Rotation, language lab) or 100% online classes.
As an e-learning specialist, the CAE language department has developed the Dexway Classroom Companion courses to complement the on-site classes. The new courses have the teacher at the center of the educational task and offer the most advanced technology for language learning. Dexway Classroom Companion is on the side of teachers in the classroom so that they provide their classes with all kinds of resources backed by the experience of the Dexway method in language teaching.

Dexway courses develop a unique and progressive method based on learning through practice (learning by doing). Dexway offers in all its courses an experience of linguistic immersion through natural and constant progress as a way to develop the language skills of language learners.

The subject is interactive and varied, and therefore, students learn while having fun, without losing motivation.
How do Dexway Classroom Companion courses adapt to classrooms?
The most important thing about the Dexway Classroom Companion e-learning language courses is that the teacher maintains a leading role inside and outside the classroom. Teachers can plan the lessons, order them according to their needs and decide when they will be available to students. Tutors and professors add new capabilities with Dexway Analytics technology, which allows them to easily track the progress of the course and adjust the content based on the evolution of the group.
E-learning teaching and blended learning teaching are in tune with the current demands of digital natives. And in turn, on-site classroom teaching maintains its role in colleges and universities. Classroom Companion appears as the link between the two teaching models that, far from being antagonistic, merge perfectly into the new Dexway courses so that students and teachers enjoy the most positive side of language learning: interactivity, participation, motivation, entertainment, diversity…
With Computer Aided E-learning technology, language classes add a new dimension for teachers and students. It is important to know the characteristics of this Dexway method.
