EFL Students Attitudes Towards e-Learning And Effect of An Online Course on Students Success in English

Year 2017, Volume 3, Issue 2, 80 - 101, 10.12.2017

Abstract

In some state universities in Turkey, students are given English preparatory education for a year and in addition to formal education they receive in the classroom environment, they also have online education embedded with into their formal education as an extra opportunity provided generally by online platforms. Within e-learning, students have online practice in relation to language areas such as grammar and vocabulary together with language skills except for speaking. Although learners have online course to support their formal class performances, the effect of online course on their overall success at preparatory classes is not clear. To have an insight into the possible effects of an online course on their success in English, 47 students were given a questionnaire to understand their attitudes towards online education, and their online scores were analyzed in comparison with their midterm and quiz scores.  It was found that the students have partly positive attitudes towards online course; however, online course does not help students in terms of their overall success at preparatory class.
