Webheads in Action: Community formation online and its role in language learning
A presentation at the 1st ELT Online Conference November 11, 2001, 13:00-13:50 GMT
by Vance Stevens, Michael Coghlan, and John Steele
Writing for Webheads is an ESL class that has met live on line each week since 1998. Considering that the class is given free by volunteer teachers, its long-standing viability suggests that participants are getting more out of it than they are putting in.
What incentives do teachers and students have to stay with the class for so long, and what benefits accrue to all concerned? This presentation takes you on a tour of the Webheads community in hopes of gaining insights to the answers to these questions.
