introduction
Introduction
  • MOODLE (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment)
  • free-source e-learning software platform
  • developed by Martin Dougiamas
  • to help educators create online courses with more interaction and collaborative content
slide3

widely used in the language teaching curriculum of CLC

  • help teachers manage language courses and provide students with multi-dimensional Chinese language learning environments
  • fulfill different levels of students' learning needs
  • provide good foundations, prepare students for class discussion
  • help teachers to manage and supervise learning processes of each student, adjusting to the student' s ability
teaching advantages of moodle
Teaching advantages of MOODLE
  • 7 indicators for measuring the course' s teaching effectiveness:

1. average students' results

2. satisfaction towards the teachers and the course

3. motivation

4. self-learning ability

5. classroom teaching atmosphere

6. students' willingness to express themselves in Chinese

7. presentation skills

slide6

These students all took the same course with the same textbook and teacher.

  • The curriculum, exercises, listening quiz, and assessment standard were all the same.
  • Table I indicates students' performance on listening quizzes in 2012 was better than in 2011.
  • Table I also indicates students’ performance on listening quizzes in 2013 and in 2012 were similar.
slide8

The average mark of 2012 is higher than of 2011.

  • In 2011, teachers sent listening exercises to students by email.
  • now upload exercises to MOODLE
  • In 2012 spring term, students tried vocabulary exercises, text listening exercises, and the listening versions of reading comprehensions.
  • In 2011, studentsreceived the same exercises by email, the teacher couldn't supervise them.
slide11

Table IV shows that students from the Spring 2012 term were most satisfied with the teacher and the course.

  • After unofficially using MOODLE during the 2012 Spring term, the students from 2012 earned higher marks in listening and speaking than those from 2011.
  • Students from 2013 Spring term earned the highest final grades among the five groups.
conclusions
Conclusions
  • MOODLE manages and monitors students' learning processes more easily and effectively than traditional methods
  • MOODLE helps teachers improve the effectiveness, breadth, and depth of classroom teaching by giving students more exercises on preparation, revision, intensive drilling, and assessment.
  • MOODLE matches students' learning habits and methods, so they willingly use it. Students prefer daily life materials to learn Chinese.
problems we are facing
Problems we are facing
  • If neither teachers nor students possessed technical skills, and if technicians were unavailable, then MOODLE would achieve little.
how to improve
How to improve
  • In this computer era, universities training Chinese Language teachers should open more cross-disciplinary majors, combining professional language teaching with advanced website designing programs

 students may learn Chinese in a mixture-style method.

slide15

We hope Chinese software developers can design some Chinese learning software which would be easier to learn and use.

  • Even users with less computer knowledge could handle a situation with ease, and teachers (with the support of computer software) could create more and more efficient web exercises to improve students' Chinese Language abilities.
