A survey of online teaching by native-speaker English instructors at Japanese universities

Abstract

This study investigates how native-speaker English teachers working at Japanese universities use the Internet in their classes. In 2008, 50 instructors completed a survey about their teaching-related use of the Internet; another group of 50 was polled in 2012. The respondents were asked about their teaching situations, whether they used Internet-based activities in class, and what they saw as the advantages and disadvantages of online teaching. The findings are considered in the light of recent research in the field.
