Al-Jarf, Reima Sado
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Asia Association of Computer Assisted Language Learning (AsiaCALL) (4th, Geongju, South Korea, Nov 10-12, 2005)
Nicenet, WebCT and Moodle were used to teach grammar to freshman students at the College of Languages and Translation, King Saud University in Saudi Arabia. The subjects were divided into three groups and were randomly assigned to the three online courses. The same questions, discussion threads, grammar websites, daily grammar lesson, exercises and quizzes were posted in the three online courses. Daily observations of student reactions, questions and discussions as well as responses to post-treatment questionnaires showed that Nicenet was the most popular. The effective and ineffective use of Online Course Management Systems in EFL instruction by female freshman students in Saudi Arabia are discussed.
