Les Chansons de la Francophonie Web Site and Its Two Web-Usage-Tracking Systems in an Advanced Listening Comprehension Course
Weinberg, Alysse
CALICO Journal, v22 n2 p251-268 Jan 2005
The "Les Chansons de la francophonie" web site is based on French songs and was developed using HTML and JavaScript for the advanced French Comprehension Course at the Second Language Institute of the University of Ottawa. These interactive listening activities include true-false and multiple-choice questions, fill in the blanks, paragraph writing, and reading comprehension based on external web links related to the themes of the songs. Because there was no tool readily available to track students' use of these web pages, they were temporarily integrated into "WebCT" until "eChanson," a more sophisticated tracking function, was developed. Sample pages from "Les Chansons de la Francophonie" are presented along with a description of how the two tracking and assessment methods are integrated into them--both internally via JavaScript and CGI and through the "WebCT" and "eChanson" shells. (Contains 5 figures and 7 tables.)
