Abstract / Description

Preliminary findings of the survey indicate that Weblearn is viewed positively by students, with both beginners and post-beginners welcoming this provision and in particular the integration between taught contents and learning materials available on Weblearn. However, although students displayed a great deal of confidence in their ability to use Weblearn, they also expressed the desire to be guided by their lecturers, in order to boost their experience on the VLE. In this context, the lecturer’s role of facilitator regarding language learning also embraces e-learning. Such findings promote the notion that it is essential for lecturers to fully integrate socio-constructivist practices and redefine their role to adapt to ever-changing practices.
