Services for students

Students with a valid Wesleyan ID can borrow language learning materials from our collections for use in the Language Resources and Technology area. These materials include films (DVD and VHS) and language related software such as Wenlin (Software for learning Chinese), SmartStart Hebrew, TouchTyping Now for Hebrew, Spanish Edu Ole, Tell me more and Rosetta Stone.

Students can also get help from language lab assistants when using language related software or if they need to use a particular software or tool (such as performing webcam recordings) as part of an assignment. Students may also receive training and technical assistance at a more advanced level if the assignment warrants it and if the instructor contacts the Language Resources and Technology staff.

If you need assistance with anything in the lab, or if you are checking out equipment, Student Media Assistants will be able to help with with the following:

  • Equipment checkout
  • How to operate an HD camcorder, flip camera
  • Building an electronic portfolio with Mahara
