The Internet and Autonomous Language Learning: A Typology of Suggested Aids
Kartal, Erdogan
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v4 n4 Article 8 p54-58 Oct 2005
As leading languages spoken all over the world, a number of learning and teaching sites or pages on the Internet specifically concerning the teaching of English, French, German and Spanish are available. A review of these sites shows that they have low standards as opposed to language teaching CD-ROMs. Generally speaking, affected largely from the structural approach, these sites present structural exercises while employing very few possibilities expected from the vast possibilities of the Internet. In the absence of satisfactory explanations in relation to previously determined objectives and direction towards other sites, the students are not only misdirected but also exposed to trouble some selfmeasurement processes. Knowing that the Internet contributes to learning autonomy and remote learning, the present study examines the extent of suggested helps for autonomous consultation.
