Abstract


The concept of computer-assisted language learning has been said to inject a new vigor into learning methodologies and it is with this in mind that this paper discusses an e-approach to the written component of a research project of academic nature carried out by students in their final course in the Foundation English Language Program at Sultan Qaboos University, Oman. The aim of this approach is to endeavor to address the contradictions which are present in the context of low performing language learners required to achieve relatively higher order language and study skill learning outcomes through the electronic medium of an e-report. The paper gives a brief overview of some of the literature in the area of learning psychology; outlines the instructional design of the e-report; describes the teachers’ and students’ roles; validates the design of the e-report against established criteria; and finally presents the results from a student perception survey.
