LeViS Workshop Invitation
- The LeViS group has the pleasure to invite you to participate in the
workshop which is organized by the Hellenic Open University within the
framework of the project "Learning via Subtitling", funded by the
European Commission (Socrates-Lingua II ):
The details of the workshop are:
Learning via Subtitling Workshop: Experiences and Perspectives
Software & Processes for Developing Language Learning Material based on
11th-12th December 2008
Hellenic Open University Library, Trion Navarchon & Mezonos
The project's major objective is the development of educational material
for active foreign language learning based on film subtitling. A
subtitling simulator has been developed which can by used by teachers to
create activities based on subtitling for film-scenes, news,
documentaries etc. Learners, on the other hand, can employ it to carry
out tasks ranging from filling in the gaps to placing mixed subtitles in
the correct order, and from transcribing the original utterances to
translating them and creating new subtitles.
The event aims to present the project results to the academic audience
and the educational community as well as to the exchange of ideas and
experience on the implementation of LeViS in the universities of the
countries participating in the project.
