There is a growing trend in the use of e-learning technology for the support of learning and teaching in universities worldwide. At St. Marianna University School of Medicine, E-learning was incorporated into ESL courses for first and second-year students in 2013. e-learning materials are mainly used to supplement in-class activities and to build academic vocabulary as well as to learn medical vocabulary. In my presentation, I will illustrate how e-learning has been effectively incorporated into ESL courses at my university. My presentation will include discussions of (1) computer resources to set up an e-learning platform, (2) useful softwares to develop e-learning materials, (3) effective use of online forums to exchange messages and ideas, (4) types of online exercises, (5) student's online activities, and (6) grading methods.
