University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM) wanted a language-learning solution to build critical communication skills for medical students. They needed a flexible solution that could either be used as part of a language program or to support independent study.
"The Rosetta Stone program provided a flexible solution to build skills to meet the language-learning needs of a wide range of students through an asynchronous, anytime, anywhere platform."
-John F. Mahoney, MD, Associate Dean for Medical Education
Texas A&M University-Commerce
With over 50 different countries represented on campus, Texas A&M University-Commerce needed a solution that would enable full-time faculty and staff to effectively communicate with its diverse student population. Texas A&M University-Commerce partnered with Rosetta Stone to equip full-time faculty and staff with the language skills they needed, while minimizing the cost to the university.
"Having the ability to offer our faculty and staff an opportunity to develop skills in languages other than English is inspirational and continues to enhance our university's globalization initiatives."
-Heidi Wright, Training and Development Manager
American Public University System
American Public University System (APUS) sought a cloud-based language-learning solution that aligned with its goal of affordable education and academic excellence. APUS used the Rosetta Stone solution to build core language skills in the six languages of study offered. The emphasis during faculty-led sessions was on grammar, culture, and other forums to activate the language learned.
Navarro College needed a language-learning solution for its Adult ESL program that would supplement classroom instruction and help prepare students to take the GED (General Educational Development) Tests in English. Navarro College utilized a Rosetta Stone solution to extend language beyond the classroom, enabling students to study at their own pace and enhance their English language skills in preparation for the GED Test.
"The area of oral skill development is an area that our students have consistently struggled with over the years. This is the one factor that led us to the decision to invest in Rosetta Stone."
-Leslie Hayes, Director of Adult Education
College of Western Idaho
The College of Western Idaho (CWI) needed a language-learning solution for adult English as a Second Language (ESL) learners that would provide the critical language skills needed to obtain employment in the local economy. CWI chose Rosetta Stone because it would enable learners to reinforce language outside of classroom while also building key computer literacy skills.
"Our focus on community and industry needs is what led CWI to develop Workplace English and digital-technology classes for many non-English-speaking laid-off workers. By breaking down language and technology barriers to employment 35% of participants reentered the workforce."
