‘Click and Listen’: A Case Study of the Development of a CALL Package

Conference paper


We describe the resourcing, development, use and evaluation of interactive multimedia courseware in language and linguistics teaching and learning at three institutions of higher education in Edinburgh who collaborated on the ‘Click and Listen’ project. It also addresses several topics, arising from our experiences with ‘Click and Listen’, some that are of relevence to CAL generally and others that are particularly salient to CAL in the sphere of linguistic education. They are: Benefits, Added Value and Good Practice (which touch inevitably on the related areas of professional and vocational training); Functional and Cultural Integration and Present and Future Perspectives.
