Online materials for TESOL and Language Teaching


This wiki was originally part of the "Evaluation and design of TESOL materials" course on MSc TESOL, but is now being used as part of the MSc Language Teaching option course "Online Language Learning".


To be able to edit on this site, you must be given access. Click on the "edit" tab, and you will be redirected to a "request access" page. Fill in the details required and please also indicate who you are, and then the tutor will give you access.

The task for the evaldesmat workshop is on Evaluation and design task February 2014

The task for the week following the lecture and workshop is on Continuing tasks

Add your comments on the task to Task comments


A suggestion: we should keep the front page as a list of links to the other pages, so that we don't have a problem being able to find pages. So please not delete information and links on this page! There is another wiki you could use just to find out about how a wiki works - go to the "sandbox" wiki on http://eval-and-design-sandbox.pbwiki.com/ 

Use the sandbox to play around with ideas


If you want to create your own wiki, you'll find a link at the foot of this page to "create your own wiki". This particular host is PBwiki. There are some other possible ways to set up a wiki: you could try wikispaces, or pmwiki.

Could you use a wiki with students? Comments about using wikis


important: if you use a website for ideas, or use a slideshare presentation, or use photos, or take anything else from somewhere on the WWW, you MUST acknowledge your source. Some people will allow you to use their materials - often they will mark this with a "creative commons" licence. Check what creative commons means on their website.


About file storage

To make the wiki easy to use, try to avoid adding a file as part of a page. This is awkward because the person reading has to click on another link, and it also has the problem of taking up storage space for the wiki. On a previous workshop, someone's photo took up almost all of the storage space for the whole wiki. Some files may be deleted so that we have space for essential things and so that we can add more pages.

If you want to prepare ideas on a Word document first, copy the content from the document and paste it into a wiki page (don't upload the document as a file).

If you want to add a powerpoint presentation, or photos - best to put these on a different site first and then link them to the wiki so that you don't use up our storage space. For powerpoint - try Slideshare; for photos try flickr
