Why is it in BETA?
First, the goal of beta testing is to ensure our teachers can successfully complete their task. This was just a new idea 1-month ago that was need for language educators. The idea has come to fruition quicker than expected but now we need your help! It's far from perfect, we know. When beta testing we need your feedback to create it the way you need.
