Critical Success Factors in Online Language Learning
TEFLIN Journal: A publication on the teaching and learning of English, v22 n1 p16-33 Feb 2011
With the proliferation of online courses nowadays, it is necessary to ask what defines the success of teaching and learning in these new learning environments exactly. This paper identifies and critically discusses a number of factors for successful implementation of online delivery, particularly as far as online language learning is concerned. These include student and teacher characteristics, instructional design, provision of support to instructors and students, technology, and language skills characteristics. I argue that these factors need to be carefully considered when designing online language learning simply because they could potentially impinge on students' learning and learning experience in these new learning environments.
