Promoting Autonomous Language Learning through Virtual Learning Environments (PP160), Paper
Virtual Learning environments have provided opportunities for teachers to promote learning autonomy in the field of language learning. This presentation shows how different activities and quizzes in Google Classroom (VLE) in a foundation writing course can be used to promote learning autonomy through monitoring students’ interaction and motivation over a semester.
