English Language Teaching Resources (ELT)

Our strongest suit

This is by far our strongest area, both in experience and technical ability.  As a group, we have been in ELT for many years, with the core group of DECP beginning their careers in ELT in the late 1980's.  That's a lot of years, and that makes for our collective "point of departure" from the viewpoint of teachers and learners.

Our techology allows for educational texts to be brought to life.  Early on, we chose not to follow the crowd in trying to lock down PDFs, making ePubs, or going after Apps for each device.  It was all too costly, time-consuming, or limited in delivery to students.  We chose to concentrate on the real needs of students, and identifying early on that there would be platform fragmentation for years to come, so why not get the books into student hands, with the features that are necessary (audio, video, testing & tracking).  It is not about the flashiness of a textbook or resources, but attending to student needs.
