How to balance foreign language and IT skills? Set up an online language school. This idea was developed by Christof Deininger, the founder of Sitex, who has many years of experience in software development and language teaching. On the virtual learning platform for German as a foreign language (DaF) qualified teachers teach via Skype video conferencing in small groups or give individual tutoring lessons. A Moodle server supports learners by providing interactive exercise materials. With our new offer, we try to deliver convenient and efficient language learning formats to the home desk, mainly based on intensive language practice. This makes us different from the purely mechanistic, fully automated language acquisition model of other platforms.
We are currently building our online marketing via social networks. In addition to our video channel on YouTube, we also want to reach our customers via Vkontakte, Facebook and Twitter.
The language school starts with offers for Russian learners of German. We plan to bring our offer also to other regions.
Technologies and skills: CMS WordPress, learning platform Moodle, e-learning, German as a foreign language (DaF), video marketing, video production, Vlog, blog.
