Departmental Bulletin Paper Electronic Texts and their Use in the Modern Language Classroom

LEIS, Adrian

 In this paper, the author discusses the use of an electronic textbook used with Japanese university students in an English speaking course. In this small-scale study, students were provided with tablet computers and required to give their opinions via a study diary regarding the use of a textbook available on the tablet computer every day of the 15-week course. Results indicated that students were satisfied with the electronic version of the textbook, especially being able to obtain immediate feedback on their answers to practice exercises completed outside of class time, and the convenience of having audiovisual materials embedded within the text.
