Japanese university students use Content 2.0 online forum to share their views of the world

Abstract

As a supplement to the textbook World Interviews (Craven, 2006) which interviews young people from 16 different countries around the world, Japanese university students taking a Spoken English 2 class share their cultural views of the world through the Content 2.0 online forum. This paper describes the system’s key features and how it was set up, shows sample web pages, reports on the results of the project including internet traffic statistics and feedback from the students, and discusses the prospects for using the Content 2.0 system again in the future as a viable computer-assisted language learning medium.
