Using Technology to Support English Language Learners in Higher Education: A Study of Voxy's Effect on English Language Proficiency

Tests the efficacy of an educational technology—Voxy—for improving English Language Learners' English language proficiency. Voxy is a web- and mobile-based application that supports English language acquisition. The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to understand whether access to Voxy’s online platform as part of the regular coursework in a community college language laboratory improved ELLs’ English language acquisition after one semester (16 weeks).
