Wang, Yuping; Chen, Nian-Shing – Innovate: Journal of Online Education, 2007
Noting that distance learning environments often pose serious obstacles to second language instruction, Yuping Wang and Nian-Shing Chen propose that synchronous learning management systems (SLMS) can address the urgent need for real-time communication to support the student acquisition of language skills. To illustrate the pedagogical value of…

Wang, Yuping; Chen, Nian-Shing – Interactive Learning Environments, 2012
This article examines the degrees of collaborative language learning that were supported in cyber face-to-face interaction. The concept of "cyber face-to-face" is used here to encapsulate the kind of environment in which a combination of real-time oral/aural, visual, and text-based interaction happens simultaneously via the various features in an…

Wang, Yuping – CALICO Journal, 2007
This article addresses a pervasive need in the area of videoconference-supported distance language learning: task design. On the basis of Chapelle's (2001) criteria for CALL task appropriateness, this article proposes a set of criteria for evaluating videoconferencing-based tasks which examine such aspects of a task as practicality,…

Wang, Yuping; Talbert-Johnson, Carolyn – International Journal of Educational Reform, 2011
The lack of intercultural competencies among secondary preservice and in-service students is one of the most significant issues facing education today. As schools, colleges, and university programs attempt to embrace the increasingly diverse student populations, mission statements have been revised and diversity initiatives designed to reflect…

Wang, Yuping; Chen, Nian-Shing; Levy, Mike – Computers & Education, 2010
This study reports a qualitative investigation that examines the design and implementation of a holistic teacher training model in a cyber face-to-face language learning context. To this end, this study first proposes an e-training model called the Practice, Reflection and Collaboration (PRC) model, and discusses the rationale and theoretical…

Wang, Yuping; Chen, Nian-Shing; Levy, Mike – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2010
This article discusses the learning process undertaken by language teachers in a cyber face-to-face teacher training program. Eight tertiary Chinese language teachers attended a 12-week training program conducted in an online synchronous learning environment characterized by multimedia-based, oral and visual interaction. The term "cyber…

Wang, Yuping – Language Learning & Technology, 2004
This study involves three dimensions: distance language education (DLE) as the context, videoconferencing as the technology, and the provision of synchronous oral and visual interaction in DLE as the core research problem. This article follows on this author's previous research in regard to the inclusion of oral and visual interaction in distance…

Wang, Yuping; Sun, Chengzheng – CALICO Journal, 2001
Through examination of the development of distance education for foreign languages, puts forth a theory on the emergence of a fourth generation of distance language education, challenging the generally accepted three-generation theory. Argues that with the use of Internet-based real time technology, distance language learning becomes synchronous…
