    intensive vocabulary practiceenforcement of the correct spellingdifficulty of lexis

    (+) Great memory enhancer, leisure time aspect of this activity, schola ludus, brain teaser

    (-) Demanding vocabulary, too hard for a beginner, Even our doctors were having a hard time.

    impossibility to cover all the acceptable answers grammar focused exercises

    (+) Stimulating, grammar revision and fixation, the option of showing hints.

    (-) No space for individual creativity, too ambiguous.

    creativity X accuracyfailure to delegate responsibility

    (+) Fast tool to look up terms, students participation, stimulates vocabulary learning.

    (-) Useless terms, untrustworthy, problems with phonetic script.

  • DisCo 2010Availability of all imaginable data about the students

  • DisCo 2010

  • DisCo 2010Dosing of the content

    gradual opening of units over the period of the semester

    to enforce students to study consistently

    Unsatisfactory results:Many students were preoccupied by their other commitmentsand studied before the exams only.

  • CONCLUSION

    ProseLearning provided & practised grammar and lexical content.Instantaneous feedback highly motivated the students.Students were actively involved in creation of the Glossary.

    ConseLearning didnt motivate distance students towards more gradual and consistent learning process.

    Failure to delegate responsibilities over the management of Glossary created excessive burden for the tutors.
