  • 2. Aims The main aim of this presentation is to give the best online resources for language teachers in order to create their own materials and activities. Its practical objectives are structured into 50 sections. Each section contains the most representative websites to use in 2009/10. In order to gather all this information we have used two main online sources. The first one is the e-learning newsletter from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC). The second one is from The Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies by Jane Hart.1 There are however other objectives we have to take into account: 1) To raise teacher awareness of the digital learning revolution. 2) To encourage teachers to combine the traditional way of teaching with the web-teaching methodology. 3) To present the endless possibilities Internet offers to enrich Language teaching 1 UOC: CLPT:
