Use of Moodle in College English Language Teaching (Reading and Listening) in China: A Narrative Review of the Literature

Jing Wen and Fan Yang

Abstract—With the development of technology such as the invention of Moodle (modular object-oriented dynamic learning environment), the teacher-centered mode in traditional English classes is gradually replaced by the student-centered style. This review investigates and evaluates how Moodle is used in college English courses to help students develop their English reading and listening skills by selecting relevant published articles and analyzing the data. Kirkpatrick’s mode of training evaluation is used to assess the levels of outcomes reported in each paper. Besides, different research methods used in each paper are also noticed and analyzed. The influence and effect of the Moodle-based teaching method is discussed at last.

Index Terms—Moodle, college English language teaching, reading, writing, Kirkpatrick’s model of training evaluation.
