The Learning Technologies online course is an introduction to the main aspects of using new technologies in the language classroom. It takes into account different situations in which teachers find themselves: both where technology is only available outside the classroom, and where the classroom is well-resourced with IT.
The course modules cover a range of web technologies, with topics including using the internet, cyber well-being for learners, using Office applications, using online video and audio, and using social networking and other web technologies for educational purposes.
