Wooosh – It’s all about mobile

Since we last talked about updates, a little while has passed. But that does definitely not mean we haven’t been working hard. Quite the contrary – we worked indeed VERY hard. For those of you who aren’t really interested in details, we’re going to start  immediately with the list of changings we have done 🙂

Video & SEO at its best – a new update brings the boost on Google

When it comes to updates, you haven’t heard from us in quite some time. The reason for that is not that we don’t have anything to report. No, the reason is rather that we will roll out a major update for you very soon. It is so big that it even makes us go all dewy-eyed :).

While we are working with the core team on the big update, every week numerous improvements make it into the live system in our deployment rhythms. In addition to the mobile view of virtually every page of alugha, the performance was also (in some cases significantly) improved. When it comes to languages, we currently also step on the gas: thanks to our newcomer Jonas (we will introduce him in detail), we really caught up on the languages Spanish and French, and a lot of the interface is finally available in those languages. But that is only the beginning because soon EVERYTHING on alugha will be multilingual in German, English, Spanish and French.

Meaningful integration of videos into teaching lessons

An incredible number of videos of every imaginable topic is accessible at all times on the Internet: From explanations of complex physical facts, to historical documentations and background reports, to political speeches. This diversity can enrich not only private users, but lessons in schools as well. Therefore, we are of the opinion that lecturers should use videos more often and integrate them into their lessons meaningfully.

New series: We introduce producers of educational videos on alugha

One of our goals at alugha is to make as many online videos that impart free knowledge available as possible. That’s why we launch a new series today: from now on, every few weeks, we will introduce one of the producers of the educational videos which we provide multilingually on alugha.

We support the distribution of educational videos of different channels which we carefully selected. They cover topics which are – also according to our experience with the education portal hoTodi – highly demanded or near and dear to us. There are, among others, videos about interesting facts from the fields of physics, politics, medicine, astronomy and chemistry. The videos briefly summarize the different facts in a vivid and easily understandable manner. You can definitely learn a lot on these channels.

Team growth! hoTodi does Tutorials again

Our CEO/CVO Bernd Korz founded the video portal hoTodi seven years ago. Meanwhile, the youtube channel, comprising of more than 530 videos, has over 8,000 subscribers and around 3.4 million views. Last year, it became a bit quiet around hoTodi because Bernd concentrated completely on alugha. Yet there has been growth since August: Matthias and Nicole, who we would like to introduce to you in this way. With the two of them on board, there are a lot of new videos and all of them in German and English due to a cooperation with alugha.

The impetus to delve into the subject gave us the throughout positive feedback at Expolingua in Berlin, on which we exhibited last month.
