Developments in ongoing English classes using electronic courseware for multi-level repeaters

Abstract

In compulsory university English classes, not all students pass. For a variety of reasons, a number of students find themselves needing to retake (repeat) one or more English credits. Placing such students in a class can be difficult for administrators. In 2008, a pilot study was launched using DynEd, a commercial software suite designed to support students’ individual learning needs. The software allowed for a large number of students of different ability to study a wide range of materials at levels matching their individual ability. By studying on a computer, rather than face-to-face, they could also study in the same time slot (class). This paper reports on how class implementation has developed and matured, particularly since it was first presented at the JALTCALL 2010 Conference.
