Abstract

The ways to inspire students' motivation on E-learning has been improving. Without a proper approach, E-learning may bring adverse effects in the long run. This study utilized a lightweight E-learning tool called MP3 in order to attract learners and upgrade their English listening comprehension. This project established a channel for linking the various multimedia-based English listening resources on web sites that students themselves can legally download contents on a regular basis. Students listened to the downloaded material off-line in a free style. Twenty-eight college students have volunteered to participate in this pioneer program using quantitative and qualitative paradigms. In addition, 50 students joined each test as the control group for comparison purposes. Three learning performance models were proposed and most students attributed themselves to a linear growth learning patterns. Results also showed that an MP3 is a good tool and students have more resources to self-assess their English language ability.
