Students Grp 1 - 7 students: 4 females, 3 males from a range of countries
Students Grp 2 - 6 students: 1 female, 5 males from a range of countries
Although students saw some advantages, they all expressed doubts. It did not
matter whether the students were web-skilled with some experience of using the net
for teaching, or whether they were novices.
Word readability tools
Simple graphics – cut & paste from net
Online E-Learning help
Discussion area excellentl
Reflection on Blended Learning Experience
Word Track changes – no time & different versions of Word
No use of student homepages or file-sharing (criticism of course design not students)4. What worked?
Methods: webCT discussion board & paper questionnaire
Time taken during course to explore new activities;
Students read more articles than usual because of availability
Coverage of both technical skills & course content took time that was not allocated
Assignment time – longer than anticipated
New transferable skill to find academic articles on net – much appreciated
Ongoing learning of web-design by most students both for materials and personal use because it was found to be enjoyable & satisfying
During the course re: online course design: how can the time be found to provide technical skills as well as content?
After the course: how can time be found to give students skills & tools to use virtual environments for their own students back in their own place? Is it appropriate to do this in a conventional MA Applied Linguistics course?
Many students became ‘addicted’ to developing their skills in online course design with the result that assignments for other courses were relatively neglected. How can we prevent this happening?6. Coping with the Consequences
