An Outline for Designing a Hybrid First Year Language Course with WebCT.
Paine, Pamela F.
This article outlines an approach to creating a Web-supported, hybrid, first year language course using WebCT software. Beginning with a statement of the pedagogical rationale for the project and an explanation of what is meant by a hybrid course, the article traces steps in the course development process. A brief summary of the suite of course design tools made available by WebCT software is then followed by suggestions for hardware and other support material needed in order to successfully implement a Web-enhanced course. Following some ideas for organizing course content and materials, the article shifts to a discussion of general principles of Web site design and then focuses on an overview of a successful working model for first year French language courses at Auburn University, Alabama. It concludes by offering a number of resources for additional help and support for instructors who may wish to create similar hybrid language courses at other institutions. (SM)
