Personalised English Language Education Through an E-learning Platform
- 211 Downloads
The article aims at modern processes in order to get most out of student’s progress in an e-learning course. This desired progress is achieved by adopting a new methodology, which incorporated innovative features to enable the creation of a personalised study plan for students in a given course (in our case it means a course of the English language). The new features include two blocks. A block integrating a questionnaire to find out student’s sensory preferences and a block of student’s knowledge. Such blocks served as input values and information to create and verify the tested e-learning course. The suggested methodology made use of exiting capabilities of an e-learning platform Moodle, namely conditioned progress though a course. It also integrated new elements so that a new individual study plan would be created in an automated way. Such a complex system served as a testing unit to verify its functionality. We use a group of bachelor students studying at our institution.
