Designing a Workable Framework for Evaluating Distance Language Instruction
Madyarov, Irshat
CALICO Journal, v26 n2 p290-308 Jan 2009
Teaching foreign languages at distance is now becoming widespread; so is the need for evaluating online language courses. This article discusses an example of a framework that was applied to evaluate an online English as a foreign language (EFL) course at a Middle Eastern university. The development of the framework investigated areas of interest specific to the given school context: level of student engagement, student perceptions, and learning outcomes. This case study followed a mixed method design. Accordingly, the data discussed are both qualitative and quantitative. (Contains 10 tables.)
