Touchstone is helping teachers improve their students' English with impressive results. To read more about Touchstone at these institutions please use the links below:
> Universidad de Las Américas (UDLA) - Ecuador
UDLA have been using Touchstone since 2011 and the results illustrate that by providing increased opportunities for use of English outside of the classroom and making more effective use of classroom time (i.e. focus on production skills), blended work can be more effective.
> Université Internationale de Casablanca (UIC) - Morocco
UIC have had great success with Touchstone. Classes were benchmarked in 2010 and 2012 after implementing Blended Learning in 2011. There was a marked progression with a shift up the CEFR scale to the intermediate (CEFR B1) and upper-intermediate (CEFR B2) levels.
> MISiS - Russia
The National University of Science and Technology MISiS is one of Russia’s leading teaching and research educational centers.
