Integration of Moodle Course Management System (CMS) into an EFL writing class

Abstract

The implementation of Course Management System (CMS) technologies can have a beneficial impact on course organization, lesson implementation, coursework distribution, teacher student communication and assessment; furthermore, CMS technologies end to help create a more student-centered learning experience. This article outlines the useful implementation of a CMS into an EFL composition classroom. The author examines how CMS technologies can be woven into an established EFL writing curriculum built upon the constructivist notion of the author as communal learner and communicator. The goal of the article is to demonstrate, through specific examples, particular Moodle CMS features that support activities and approaches inherent in the “process approach” writing class.
