Promoting Learner Awareness and Autonomy Using an Online Learning Platform for University Chinese
Refereed conference paper presented and published in conference proceedings


摘要The paper will present how an Online Learning Platform for University Chinese I (CHLT1100) which was developed by the Independent Learning Centre and the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at The Chinese University of Hong Kong helps to promote learner awareness and autonomy in the learning process. The platform was first launched in 2014 and so far, a total of 2,556 students have used it. User feedback which was very positive was collected via a focus group study carried out from late 2014 to early 2015. Preliminary analysis suggests that the platform is able to: (1) heighten students’ awareness towards the structure of their written language via the presentation of the characteristics of Chinese grammar through comparison; (2) enhance students’ knowledge on Chinese grammar through the presentation of the detailed explanations on controversial terms and learning guides on various topics ; (3) encourage independent learning among themselves by engaging students to develop individual learning goals and reaching them through the pace they are comfortable with; and (4) stimulate students’ interest in further studying the subject matter through the presentation of theories and the analysis of current language use and patterns. The paper will conclude by summarizing what makes online learning platforms like ours work and providing further improvement suggestions.
