Key Factors for Effective Online Language Learning: The Case of Latin

Panos Seranis.

The paper investigates the important role key components (e-tutors,classroom facilitators, SMTs) play for a successful implementation of a distance teaching and learning course in the classroom. The author argues that a potential contribution of ICT to the online language learning should acknowledge the changing roles of teachers and pupils in the teaching-learning process and stress the need for a development in teachers’ pedagogical thinking and practice.
