Learning Outcomes of a General English Course Implementing Multiple E-learning Technologies and Active Learning Concepts

    Budi Waluyo

This study attempts to initiate discussions on integrating the concepts of smart classroom and active learning into general English course design. It examines students' learning outcomes after studying a general English course involving ICT integration, integrated-skills approach, and formative assessment, developed from the concepts of smart classroom and active learning. The data were collected during the 3rd academic term (January-May 2018) that consisted of students' pre- and post-tests scores on vocabulary, listening, grammar, reading and writing. There were 983 students (77.8% female and 22.2% male) involved with various educational backgrounds and English proficiency levels. The data were examined by using paired-samples t-test, independent t-test, one-way ANOVA and analyses of students' improvement by changes of levels. The results indicate significant differences in students' scores in total and across skills. These results shed light on curriculum and course design with regards to the integration of ICT, integrated-skills approach, and formative assessment.
