Abstract

As many courses around the world are offered to learners through the distance or blended learning mode, higher education students have the opportunity to take such courses. The current project describes the design of a “Multimedia Teaching Materials” course for the master’s level students who are pre-service or in-service teachers of English language learners of different levels. The course reported here was taught at a distance because the instructor was located in the U.S. while the learners were in Taiwan. This paper includes reflections on and evaluation of such design. Data used for quantitative and qualitative analyses included the instructor’s observation, learners’ online learning style inventory results, the emails and private FB Messenger messages exchanged, students’ assignment files, and final course evaluation. The results offer tips for a successful distance-learning course for preparing English teachers of the 21st century.
