On May 21, 2020, a dissemination workshop was organized for the World Literature and Comparative Literature – English Language and Literature (Philology) BA students at Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania, Romania. Given the critical situation created by the pandemic (COVID-19), the meeting was organized online, with all students joining a Google Meet from their homes, sitting in front of their computers.
Enikő Pál, one of the staff members of Sapientia team, shortly presented the Culture and Languages for All project, spoke about its aims, target groups and the importance of cultural heritage for education. She pointed out the many advantages of using such language learning material, especially in the context of online teaching and learning. She then presented the E-learning platform and the available language material, allowing students to take a look at the existing submodules. After an overview of the topics, students were encouraged to choose any submodule they would like to go through and evaluate it.
During the workshop, the students were given individual usernames and passwords provided by the organiser of the event to log in and they were offered guidance on how to access and use the platform. They were asked to go through at least one submodule and send their feedback on it via google forms questionnaire. Their feedback was expected to be turned in during the following days. The resulting evaluation of the chosen language material was quite positive.
