For those of you who learn better by 'listening' why not try QWIKI. If you're feeling lazy about reading new information on a topic, you can type it into QWIKI and within seconds you'll be sitting back and listening to the information come to you. QWIKI will tell you all the important information about the subject and also comes accompanied by photos. In an ESL/EFL context, QWIKI could allow users to learn about a variety of topics through multimedia and storytelling, rather than through reading. I could see how it could also be particularly useful for students with dyslexia or simply for students with reading difficulties. I know that many of my students are often lazy about looking up any information on Wikipedia so this seems to be an exciting new alternative.
