Jen novaj informoj lastatempe senditaj de Duolingo. La firmao volas, ke Duolingo-eventoj fakte estu lecionoj:
Can you believe we’re halfway through 2022? We’ve accomplished so much together already. Since the start of the year, we’ve hosted over 15,000 events and helped 130,000 attendees improve their speaking skills. We’ve also launched a number of changes this year, including a brand new homepage design and updated Zoom meeting features to keep you more secure.
Today, we’re excited to share an update to our platform: Duolingo Events is now Duolingo Classes! We’ve seen how your conversations, lessons, games, and experiences help learners make real progress on their language goals with a quirky, fun, and engaging Duolingo twist. By updating our name to Classes, we help communicate how impactful these experiences are, and help you attract even more learners to your events.
Here are a few key reasons this change is a win for hosts and attendees:
“Classes” better reflects what learners already love about events: experienced hosts, focused sessions, and rewarding and regular progress. During our research with learners, many of them referred to the events they already attend as classes.
”Classes” better reflects what hosts already offer learners: creative and structured group learning, personalized feedback, and support to reach their goals.
”Classes” drives better outcomes: we ran an experiment to discover how learners respond to “Classes” instead of “Events”. Turns out, they respond incredibly well -- site visits increased by 60% and unique attendance by nearly 20%
Here are some things to look out for:
Our Homepage URL will become classes.duolingo.com instead of events.duolingo.com. Previous page URLs will automatically redirect to our new domain.
Our team email will become email@example.com. Emails to our previous email firstname.lastname@example.org will automatically redirect to our new domain.
“Duolingo Events” and “events” will be phased out and updated to “Duolingo Classes” and “classes.”
What does this mean for hosts?
Don’t worry — you don’t need to make any changes to how you host today! Your fun, creative and unique ways of hosting still belong here. By better reflecting the learning experiences you already offer, we expect to see more RSVPs and attendees at your classes.
As always, our team continues to work on many updates to help you succeed in bringing language learners together whether you’re a host who chooses to volunteer their time, or a host who chooses to charge for their efforts. Send us an email at email@example.com or join us for office hours anytime you have questions.
