Internet-based Real Time Language Education: Towards a Fourth Generation Distance Education.
Wang, Yuping; Sun, Chengzheng
CALICO Journal, v18 n3 p539-61 2001
Through examination of the development of distance education for foreign languages, puts forth a theory on the emergence of a fourth generation of distance language education, challenging the generally accepted three-generation theory. Argues that with the use of Internet-based real time technology, distance language learning becomes synchronous for the first time and the immersion of distance and campus-based education into a new education system is inevitable.
