bulletFull Text Document

This article describes the experiences of developing the use of e-learning in language courses, illustrating a gradual shift from resource (CAL) type packages to integrated content and communications tools. She indicates the way in which advances in technologies available has substantially changed both general working practices and thinking about course design. The article outlines the growing sophistication with which e-learning developments have been used to support more critical and analytical learning activities leading to new approaches to building in ‘research’ and ‘originality’ into undergraduate studies. The significance of these changes is that courses are developed co-operatively in the department and designed from the outset with e-learning as an integral component of a student-centred curriculum.
