Presentations

We have produced a number of videos from international conferences where engnet-education has been represented.

IATEFL, 44th international conference, Harrogate 2010

This presenatation was a practical workshop which aimed aimed at people who are interested in setting up a Self Access Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) for their school or students. The session will first address some FAQs about exactly what to expect from an eLearning site for language practice; how much it costs, how to get started and what exactly it involves. In the second session, a more practical approach is taken, and delegates will be shown how easy it is to create and edit a quiz, mark a student’s assignment and even create a course within a live Moodle site. Following the practical demonstration, there will be a more general discussion as to what constitutes a good design for Computer Aided Language Learning tools in a Virtual Learning Environment. We will also discuss how to structure the key components of an online quiz or lesson based on current pedagogical theory. This will look at how to make these materials interactive, motivating and task-based. In addition, we will also consider the implications for online tests and how to compose an internet-based test which could be used for placement purposes or evaluation before or after a student leaves the institution.
