THE POWER OF learning.
The Pops textbook & resources are powerful digital learning curriculum centered around an interactive text with instructor resources, activities, test questions, and more. All included at no-cost with Pops. Printed versions of the text in both color and black & white are available at-cost for tactile learners.
THE POWER OF planning.
Outline & Speaking Notes is an AI-driven outline builder tool that helps students quickly learn the format of an outline, while putting the focus on the content of their message. Automated speaking notes teaches students the importance of concise memory jogging notes for extemporaneous speaking.
THE POWER OF practicing.
Speech Practice is a patent pending AI and machine learning powered tool that gives insightful and intelligent feedback on how to improve during presentation practice, whether students are at home, in the classroom, or anywhere. It not only provides delivery recommendations but content improvement recommendations. It is like having a personal speech tutor whenever a student needs it.
THE POWER OF presenting.
Visual Aids & Participate saves time during speech presentation days by removing technology hurdles. Students gain screen controls when it is their time to present on their device. Their speaking notes and speaking timer are there too!
THE POWER OF reviewing.
Reviewing focuses on the individual needs of students. Speech Video is a robust video platform for recording, uploading, evaluating, and reviewing, quickly and easily. Self Review and Peer Review(s) are great tools for evaluating the learned practices with real-world implementation. Instructor Evaluation enhances the instructor’s ability to grade efficiently and provide recommendations for further student improvement.
THE only TOOLSET
Pops is the only toolset that helps students through the entire speechmaking process. It is like having a personal, on-demand speech tutor, providing instruction, guidance and intelligent feedback throughout the whole process. The Pops team are the most passionate group that is focused on public speaking education and student/instructor success.
While the learning process toward becoming a better speaker takes time, Pops dramatically shortens the learning curve each step of the way... Students write great outlines almost automatically, without tedious formatting. They turn practice sessions into valuable interactive learning experiences. When students present, they see results that lead to a desire to improve. We believe in helping students realize that communication skills are not only essential but can be easy and fun to learn. Students will not only pass their Public Speaking class they will gain an invaluable life skill.
