Moodle in the writing lab: Foregrounding task design as topic in instructor-learner exchange

Abstract

The Moodle course management system provides an enabling environment for the delivery of English as a second language instruction. This paper presents a by-product use of Moodle as a textbook authoring environment, and opens a related question: does on-the-fly in-class task revision in the Moodle classroom environment create a scenario which supports (or in fact gives rise to) learner initiated discussion of task issues such as effectiveness, performability and appropriateness?
