E-Learning, E-Teaching, E-Assessment: Aspects of Course Design for On-Line Web Based Courses Used with EFL/ESL Learners.
Traditional means of education and assessment will cease to exist as distance learning and on-line courses become more available to students. This paper looks at issues of e-content, e-grading, and e-assessment in the world of teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL)/English as a Second Language (ESL). The paper further examines the process for designing and implementing on-line Web-based language courses for the Internet. Issues regarding content, design formats, and assessment are discussed, and suggestions are made for understanding how best to implement the theoretical and practical issues facing on-line learners, practitioners, and host institutions brokering or hosting cyber instruction. Current trends in the creation of on-line courses, with a focus on the area of foreign and second language learning, are explored. The paper argues that as educational technology moves closer towards eliminating the practices of traditional classroom teaching, on-line teaching and learning will become a more practical and viable solution to meeting learners' educational needs.
