Through Teachers' Eyes: The Use of Virtual Classrooms in ELT
Castañeda, Jairo Enrique; Cruz Arcila, Ferney
HOW, v19 n1 p76-92 Dec 2012
The use of virtual environments to support as well as to complement language teaching and learning processes is becoming a recurrent practice and sometimes policy in several educational institutions. This paper reports the results of an inquiry carried out at the language center of a private university in Bogotá. Those results intended to describe EFL teachers' viewpoints regarding the promotion of autonomous, collaborative, and meaningful learning through the use of virtual classrooms in the teaching of English as a foreign language. Findings show that the promotion of these three types of learning through the use of virtual classrooms still represents challenges in the context in which this study was carried out.
