student responses
Student responses

“I like to be able to know in advance when to turn in my work. It was excellent to get the course schedule ahead of time and also the way you would be grading us because then I quickly knew what was expected of me.”

“I liked the web discussions – the communication with the fellow students and the teacher. I found the way of giving feedback very useful and clear.”

UNTELE 2004

slide15
“It was interesting to do the assignments and work in small groups. We were ‘forced’ to communicate. …there were a lot of issues in the book worth discussion.”

“It was good to look for information, e.g. on the internet, about British culture.”

“The course provided support and promoted learner autonomy. …encouraged students to do their own information searches and work independently.”
