The effective design and innovative application of computer-based tools should provide EFL learners with better learning environments and help build conducive language learning communities within and outside the classroom.. This presentation will demonstrate the use of an English Language Skills Training System which has been designed and developed by the presenters since 2008.

In the workshop we will take you to experience the use of the system in practice through the following steps:

1. Log in to the Resource Management System(RMS) as a teacher, and you will see an interactive multimedia question and test items editor, then follow the instruction and you will see there are more than 18 different items as templates, and next, design your innovative item, input and editing learning resources in it, finally, release it to the resource library when you finish the work.

2. Log in to the Course Management System (CMS) as a teacher, combine the items in the resource library with a number of task activities, arrange schedules for students within and outside the classroom either for assessment purpose or skills training.

3. Log in to the Language Learning Smart Client (LLSC) as a student, complete the
corresponding task arranged by the teacher, then start a centralized test on schedule.

Last, you will experience conducting assigned interactive task activities through the system.

4. Log in to CMS again as a teacher to see and download the record of students’ performance.

Teachers can arrange activities to guide students in their learning, collect data to construct or prescribe exercises, tests, and conduct surveys. It also enables instructors to comment on students’ homework and tests separate from the automatically provided scores, and learners’ feedback or comments can be collected. In a word, teachers can collect their students’ formative data in the process through the system.
