Individual activity task 2 gissela acosta bravo

  1. 1.  Opportunities for language learning in distance education are diverse, and include various permutations of media use, interaction and support.
  2. 2. Examples of current diversity include: • satellite-delivered classes to several sites with medium-sized numbers, augmented by print materials and weekly computer conferences • print-based courses with CD-ROM and real-time chat systems broadcast TV, supplemented by print and audio materials, and some chat facilities multimedia courses, combining a range of synchronous and asynchronous media.
  3. 3. One taxonomy of online courses was developed by McGreal of TeleEducation New Brunswick.  He makes a distinction between: Online correspondence courses: make use of print, audio and video tapes and e-mail and probably some computer-based training courseware.  CMC courses: may have a similar element to online courses, including written texts and possibly audio/video tapes and computer software.  Enhanced communication is possible through discussion packages, listservs (an e-mail discussion list) or bulletin boards. World Wide Web courses: can be followed on the World Wide Web and can take advantage of links to other relevant sites.  These courses can be either text-based, or can include graphics and animation. This grouping includes synchronous communication.
