These days many of us reach for a smartphone, tablet or laptop to look up a word or to find an answer to a burning question. The Internet provides us with quick and easy access to an extensive range of information. English language learners alone have a multitude of reference materials, language tools and exercises available to them. They can listen to educational podcasts, work on grammar exercises and access online dictionaries and corpora, to name a few. In this course, students will improve their academic writing skills through exploring educational applications of the Internet for both individuals and educational institutions and by discussing issues surrounding them. As a secondary focus, students will be introduced to useful online tools and resources to improve their writing skills and language use and how to use them effectively.
The course is part of admission "ang311 Written English".
