Marsha Chan demonstrates a medley of media and motivating methods to enable learners to modify their accents and improve their oral production in a distance education environment. Learning materials include print, DVDs, online software and YouTube presentations. She encourages interaction by using text-based discussion forums in AngelLearning, Voxopop voice-based e-learning, and CCC Confer Web conferencing technology, featuring application and desktop sharing, Web tours, Web cams, and archiving sessions for later online access. While the examples may focus on language learning, the principles of delivery and communication are applicable to other online classes that encourage interaction and oral skills development.
