Research and Practice on the Blended Teaching Mode of College English Based on MOOC + SPOC Platform

Abstract

Based on comparison and contrast between the blended teaching mode and the traditional one, this project takes college English course at Harbin Institute of Technology as an example to design and practice the blended teaching mode based on the MOOC + SPOC platform. This mode aims to develop cross-cultural communicative competence of college students in an all-round way. On the basis of the teaching resource database set up by ourselves, the blended teaching is led by an open and collaborative teaching community and also driven by various communicative activities. With the diversified assessment as a guarantee, an Internet+ oriented college English learning community centered on students is established. This mode consists of online learning and face-to-face instruction with miscellaneous activities such as discussions, presentations, role-play and reports, which reflects the Internet thinking of openness, participation, collaboration and sharing, as well as the concept of active learning, research-based learning and team work. The results show that the blended teaching not only makes full use of the advantages of MOOCs but also gives full play to the strengths of face-to-face teaching, thus optimizing the teaching effect.
