This is a course to learn a variety of methods of teaching (and learning) English using technology. On top of getting familiar with the standard CALL system, acquiring good skills with computers, the Internet, Mobile Phones, and Tablets are the main focus of our exploration. We investigate how we can best utilize these modern technologies for improving students' understanding of English and their motivation to learn. Participants of this course are expected to actually try using each of the devices/media/tools/software programs that are introduced each week to test the effectiveness by themselves.

This is the second half of the course on General English.

This is the English B course offered by Prof. Hideto Harashima at Maebashi Institute of Technology. The aim of this course is to facilitate English communication skills using a computer and the Internet. Participants are expected to express their thoughts in English through online tools. The lessons will be conducted mostly in English.
