Description

The English version is called “Virtual Cabinet”. It was the first created by the university and served as a model for the German version as well as well as the Spanish, Italian and French versions. The story is adapted for each language to match the culture of each country. In the English version, the learner becomes a consultant for a British Minister. 21 bills are available and the learner has to select one. He has to study the bill and present it and his conclusion to the Minister (written summary). The learner has access to news reports, interviews and recorded conversation to draw his conclusion. The work form the learned will be rated by a teacher/tutor. In the school year of 2007-2008 Cooplang has been used by 2500 students and 35 teachers/tutors. The collaboration with the University of Grenoble 3 and the University of Lille 3 helped maintain the project and its economic viability. Thanks to this collaboration, the scenario is updated regularly and the offer on the website is expanded.
