ELiT exploits advances in computational linguistics and machine learning, with patented technology, to provide a range of tools to support learners of English. We matched the academic research and application of the technical know-how with a pedagogical approach to providing practice and feedback for EFL learners. Overlaid with an intuitive, engaging and easily interpretable user interface developed by specialists the vision is the creation of a range of tools that can democratise the learning of English.
Our passion is to create access and give support to individual learners for whom better English could be the breakthrough for a better job or the change for further education. We want to harness the power of technology to deliver robust automated assessment and nuanced feedback to support teachers in the classroom setting as well as the solo learner on their mobile far removed from any educational institution.
Through a combination of motivational support, explanation and encouragement we can assist a learner to explore their own capabilities and develop their skill whilst replacing some of the more routine tasks a teacher faces, like marking multiple scripts, and enabling them to focus on the personalised support of their students.
ELiT has already launched Write & Improve, work is taking place on a beta version of Read & Improve with plans to apply the same rigour and technological approach to the other skills too. The free online tool for Write & Improve is complemented by specific premium products to focus on exam support or to work in the classroom. An API is available and has been incorporated to provide the power of the automated assessment engine into other products.
