Using Web-Based Instruction to Promote Active Learning: Learners' Perspectives
Lee, Lina
CALICO Journal, v23 n1 p139-156 Sep 2005
This article reports classroom research on learners' perspectives on Web-based instruction that utilizes the "Blackboard" course management system. The Web-based instruction aims to provide and support collaborative learning while fostering learners' autonomy and accountability. The article also provides a description of the course design along with task-based activities. The results drawn from the questionnaires and final oral interviews show that the experience of using Web-based learning has changed the way students view the role of Internet technology in the development of their Spanish language learning. In addition to the reinforcement of learners' writing and communication skills, Web-based learning empowers learners to be actively involved in the process and to be responsible and accountable for their own learning.
