A New Benefit for Fall 2022 Classes

All users enrolled in a fall 2022 semester class are now automatically eligible for a new benefit with their Pops subscriptions. All users now have access to unlimited Speech Practice sessions. If you are a student, that means you can practice as many times as you'd like for your speech presentations without purchasing additional sessions. If you are an instructor, that means your students can now harness the power or automatic speech feedback without any additional fees. Additionally, students will retain access to Speech Practice even after their class ends this semester. More information on how to retain access to Speech Practice will be released later this semester.

For instructors, if your class currently has access to Speech Practice, you will need to include it on your assignments. If your class currently does not have access to Speech Practice, it has been added to your class, and you will need to include it on your assignments. When you include it on your assignments you will need to give it a due date and point value. The point value can be set to zero and these practice sessions do not have to be graded. If you prefer your current class not to have access to Speech Practice on their speech assignments, please let us know and we will make an alternate arrangement for your student to not miss out on this new benefit.
