A Comparative Study of E-learning Platform in Reading and Translating Course for Engineering Students

Xue Shi


Web-based learning environments are being more widely used in higher education to support face to face teaching activities. Universities in Europe, the United States, and other developed countries extensively use e-learning platforms; however, this is still in the trial stage in Chinese universities and educational institutions. Moodle has been considered as an interactive e-learning tool to motivate students and involve them in resolving both individual and collaborative tasks. In order to improve class attendance and homework assignments submission, an e-course was developed via Moodle and proved to be a positive teaching/learning experience. Following this study, a series of conclusions can be drawn concerning its benefits in terms of stimulating students’ interest in homework tasks and increasing their frequency of interaction with teachers and among colleagues.
