The use of  Web 2.0 technologies are affording learners in online courses and Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) ways to engage in  learning practices traditionally attributed to the F2F classroom.   This presentation will examine the correlation between online learning and traditional forms of language instruction. Our discussion will focus on issues related to:

  • The National Standards
  • Materials development
  • Forms of learner interaction
  • Syllabus and course design
  • Feedback and error correction
