TOWARDS AN EFFECTIVE USE OF AUDIO CONFERENCING IN DISTANCE LANGUAGE COURSES - 0 views

  •  
    In order to respond to learners' need for more flexible speaking opportunities and to overcome the geographical challenge of students spread over the United Kingdom and continental Western Europe, the Open University recently introduced Internet-based, real-time audio conferencing, thus making a groundbreaking move in the distance learning and teaching of languages. Since February 2002, online tutorials for language courses have been offered using Lyceum, an Internet-based audio-graphics conferencing tool developed in house.

    Our research is based on the first Open University course ever to deliver tutorials solely online, a level 2 German course, and this article considers some of the challenges of implementing online tuition. As a starting point, we present the pedagogical rationale underpinning the virtual learning and teaching environment. Then we examine the process of development and implementation of online tuition in terms of activity design, tutor training, and student support. A number of methodological tools such as logbooks, questionnaires, and observations were used to gather data. The findings of this paper highlight the complexity of the organisational as well as the pedagogical framework that contributes to the effective use of online tuition via audio conferencing systems in a distance education setting.

The Impact of Asynchronous Audio Feedback on Teaching and Social Presence: A Survey of ... - 2 views

  • The Impact of Asynchronous Audio Feedback on Teaching and Social Presence: A Survey of Current Research.
  • Data analysis revealed that 1. students perceived audio feedback to be more effective than text-based feedback for conveying nuance, 2. audio feedback was associated with feelings of increased involvement and enhanced learning community interactions, 3. audio feedback was associated with increased retention of content, and 4. audio feedback was associated with the perception that the instructor cared more about the student.
  • Document analysis revealed that students were far more likely to apply content for which they received audio feedback than content for which text-based feedback was received and at significantly higher cognitive levels. This presentation explores the original study, an ongoing study and two emerging, related areas of inquiry.

      I love this site! It presents reading material at three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced Spanish readers. After you make your selection, you are brought to a page offering pre-reading activities, the story in text form, and post-reading activities. Students can't help but learn from this site. A balanced blend of grammar, vocabulary, culture and history makes this site interesting and engaging. A pop-up dictionary enables students to understand new vocabulary in context. Awesome!

      Here is a comment to my comment. We Spanish teachers who are not of Spanish-speaking origins often carry an accent with us no matter how hard we try to erase it. This is one reason why it is so important to expose our students to authentic materials in order to help them learn proper pronunciation.

      Learning about Spanish in context is one of the foundations for increased interest in language learning. The relevance of learning nouns and verbs becomes clear once students understand the people and culture associated with the target language
